The Railroad Commission of Texas oversees the lifeblood of the state economy—the energy industry. The agency regulates the oil, gas and mining industries, and a three-member commission serves at the head. Each commissioner is elected in a statewide race and serves a full-time, six-year term.

Friendswood resident Ryan Sitton was elected during the 2014 gubernatorial election and is the first engineer to serve on the commission in 50 years. Sitton was the CEO of Pinnacle ART, which he founded in 2006, before stepping down to make his first foray into politics. He has nearly 20 years of oil and gas experience, previously working for companies such as Marathon Oil and Occidental Petroleum. He is a Texas A&M University graduate. Sitton’s term expires in 2020.
