Jim Wright

Texas Railroad Commission

The Honorable Jim Wright was elected as the 51st Texas Railroad Commissioner in 2020, becoming the first statewide elected official from South Texas in almost 20 years.

Commissioner Wright is no stranger to the energy industry; his first job was at a hazardous waste facility when he was 19. Since then, he has successfully used his hands-on experience to create a group of environmental services companies that service the energy industry.

During his time in office, Jim has advocated for updating Railroad Commission rules and promoted policies to ensure consistent regulation and improved transparency.
