I am impressed with everything I have seen about Michael Williams who is running for re-election to the position of Chairman of the Texas Railroad Commission. God, family, country. The respect that he shows for them combined with real leadership skills and a commitment to make tomorrow better than today makes him someone we are blessed to have serving us in Texas. Evidently, I am just one of many who like what he has done and his vision for the future. Check out the press release below to see what I mean.

AUSTIN – Texas Railroad Commission Chairman Michael Williams’ campaign today announced they have raised more than $1.3 million in his bid for reelection.
The latest report to the Texas Ethics Commission will show Williams raised $624,480.77 for the reporting period covering January to June of 2008. As of July 15, Williams maintains over $800,000 on-hand. Of those totals, Williams has raised $67,286 online.
“Chairman Williams is working hard bringing his pro-growth, environmentally conscious energy solutions to the people of Texas and they are responding,” said Corbin Casteel, Williams Campaign Manager, who noted that nearly 70% of Williams’ donors work outside the energy industry as evidence of Williams’ broad base of support.
