“Geologist Becky Berger to Seek Republican Nomination for Texas Railroad Commissioner”
Geologist and current State Republican Executive Committee Member, Becky Berger, will seek
the Republican Nomination for Texas Railroad Commissioner in the 2014 Primary. Berger, an
oil & gas professional and a degreed Geologist, has served on the State Republican Executive
Committee since 2010 and on the Board of the Texas Federation of Republican Women since
“First and foremost, I pledge to the voters I will serve the entirety of each term for which I am
elected,” Berger said.
Texas needs Railroad Commissioners who have a thorough knowledge of this industry and
who actually want to serve as a Railroad Commissioner. I believe that my experience and my
commitment to the job make me the qualified Conservative Republican running for this office.
Berger earns a living drilling oil & gas wells: from finding the location to completion. Berger
understands the industry and what is required to free our nation from the dependence of
foreign oil as well as intrusive federal regulations.
“The oil field is a way of life for my family and thousands of other families in Texas. Protecting
our ability to continue being the largest supplier of petroleum products in the United States is
why I seek this office,” Berger continued.
The Texas Railroad Commission should be governed with the conservative, republican
principles Berger embodies.
“The Texas oil & gas industry should lead by example with high expectations, high standards
and lowered regulations” Berger concluded.
Berger is the mother of three adult children and her husband, David Berger, reside on a ranch
outside of Schulenburg, where they raise cattle.
