AUSTIN – Conservative grassroots leader and oil and gas industry businessman, Weston Martinez, today filed for the Texas Railroad Commission seat being vacated by Chairman David Porter.  Weston has served as a conservative grassroots leader in Texas for over twenty years, having served on the State Republican Executive Committee, as a Governor Perry appointee to the Texas Real Estate Commission, and as a leader against San Antonio and Houston’s equal rights ordinances that sought to elevate LGBT status.  Martinez is also involved in organizing Hispanics for Ted Cruz for president. In addition to his conservative grassroots work on behalf of Texans,

Weston is also the only candidate in the race with oil and gas experience.  As a small business owner, Weston has actually built a business that services oil and gas companies in Texas.  As an oil and gas industry water supplier, Weston’s businesses have drilled wells and designed systems to meet the needs of the oil and gas industry, even in times of significant drought. “I’ve been in the trenches fighting for conservative causes in Texas my whole adult life,” said Weston Martinez.  “This office presents the perfect opportunity to put my oil and gas experience to work for the people of Texas, and ensure that the Texas Railroad Commission remains committed to conservative principles and reasonable regulation so the oil and gas industry in our state continues to thrive.  Whether it’s developing solutions to complex challenges like potential induced seismicity, or fighting the Obama Administration’s assault on Texas oil and gas, I’ll wake up every day to do my very best for the conservative grassroots who I’ve fought along side for years,” concluded Martinez.

Views On The Federal Government

img

 Government’s Involvement: 
We must fight to keep the federal government from infringing upon our citizens everyday lives. We must remember, the government does not create jobs. By keeping the federal government in check, and the EPA out of Texas, we can provide a better future for our children.

EPA & Environment rights:
We must fight against burdensome unconstitutional rules promulgated by the EPA related to CO2 and methane emissions and Waters of the United States.

We must protect individual citizens property rights. Property rights must be upheld whether its surface or mineral ownership.

With my leadership and your help we have an opportunity to unite against the EPA. Together we can create a desire to bring landowners and exploration companies closer together, in order to be more productive, effective and encourage development.
