Throughout her career, Christi Craddick has been retained as legal counsel by prominent Texas firms, specializing in oil and gas, water, tax issues, electric deregulation and environmental policy, and has spent more than a decade as a trusted political adviser in Austin.
Since her tenure on the Commission began in November 2012, Craddick has pushed to maximize the effectiveness and efficiency of an energy industry that is driving the state’s economic success. Making it a top priority, she has worked to educate the public about the oil and gas industry and its impact in Texas. Craddick has advocated for recycling in the oilfields, helping to drive the percentage of reclaimed water upwards, an essential achievement in a state enduring a multi-year drought. As part of her efforts to modernize the agency, she has championed an Information Technology overhaul for the Commission, seeking improvements that would upgrade the Geographic Information System, increase public access to the agency’s data, and speed up inspections and permitting times.
A native of Midland, Craddick earned both her Bachelor’s Degree as a Plan II graduate and her Doctorate of Jurisprudence from The University of Texas at Austin.
