AUSTIN ––“With my term coming to an end soon, and my successor having been elected last month, I am stepping down from my position as Railroad Commissioner effective close of business, Dec. 7, 2012.

“It has been my privilege to serve the State of Texas for the last 22 years, and an honor words cannot describe to have been given the opportunity to pursue my dream as a public servant. I appreciate Governor Perry’s continued confidence in my judgment to have appointed me to such crucial and relevant regulatory roles.

“It has been a pleasure to work most recently with Chairman Smitherman, Commissioner Porter, and all the incredibly talented Railroad Commission employees dedicated to protecting Texas. I congratulate Commissioner-elect Christi Craddick and offer her and the Railroad Commission my best wishes.”
