1/05/2009

One of the three officials who oversees natural gas production in the Barnett Shale and energy development across the state announced on his Web site his candidacy for the U.S. Senate to replace Sen. Kay Bailey Hutchison, R-Texas, who is expected to run for governor in 2010.

Commissioner Michael Williams, chairman of the Railroad Commission of Texas, has worked with the organization since 1999, and previously worked as of Counsel at Dallas-based Haynes and Boone LLP and assistant district attorney in his hometown of Midland. Despite its name, the Railroad Commission of Texas no longer has anything to do with locomotive transportation.
