DEMOCRATIC RAILROAD COMMISSION CANDIDATE CHRYSTA CASTAÑEDA HOLDS ‘INDUSTRY FOR CHRYSTA’ VIRTUAL EVENT

The event will feature several current and former oil and gas executives who support Chrysta’s candidacy for the Texas Railroad Commission, which regulates Texas’ powerful oil and gas industry. Those supporters include: 

Matt Gallagher
David Elkouri
Jack Balagia
Mike Powell
Walter Mayer
Cheryl Pudwill
David Stallwitz
Dwayne Purvis
Karen Stallings

“We welcome the support of anybody and everybody who wants to see real change at the Railroad Commission,” Chrysta says. “I’ve been a part of this industry for decades, and I will continue to support it and the jobs it provides to Texans. But it’s undeniable that there are certain practices, such as flaring and venting, that are a black eye on the industry. They waste our resources, harm our health and environment, and they contribute greenhouse gasses to the climate. We can support jobs and clean up the environment at the same time.”

Chrysta has received support from more than 3,000 individual donors, as well as the endorsement of every major Texas newspaper that has issued an endorsement so far, including The Dallas Morning News, The Houston Chronicle, the San Antonio Express-News, and the Laredo Morning Times.

Chrysta Castañeda is an engineer, attorney, and Democratic candidate for the Texas Railroad Commission. Her campaign website is www.chrystafortexas.com and is on social media at #chrystafortexas.
