The Railroad Commission affects all of us as it deals with oil and gas and where, how and when they drill. Ultimately, it affects us at the pump and in our homes. We need someone who understands the industry, which is why u am voting for Jeff Weems.

If you need someone to regulate the industry, they need to understand the industry. Jeff Weems is that guy. Better to pick your candidate based on qualifications rather than party affiliation.

Jeff Weems is a qualified professional in the oil and gas industry and has been unafraid to meet the folk and didscuss the issues while we really don't know who his opponent is or what he stands for.

He is the only one who knows the oil business. He will also help protect the environment.

I'm tired of the party of NO! FYI: There cannot be any drilling without benzene and the rest of the polyaromatic hydrocarbons. These are IN oil and gas.

Jeff Weems is the only logical choice. And the doofus who "doesn't give a shit" probably thinks the agency regulates railroads. He better do his homework before election day if he "gives a shit" about the environment in Texas.

Jeff Weems knows of what he speaks.I never heard of his opponent. With oil production coming back in Texas, we need someone that understands what a Railroad Commissioner really does!

Mr. Weems has the endorsement of all of the major newspapers in Texas. He has the best credentials for this important position.

Porter is nonexistent and won't protect the public.
