Mark Miller Announces Candidacy for Texas Railroad Commissioner

0

Texas Politics

AUSTIN, Texas, Sept. 2, 2015 (SEND2PRESS NEWSWIRE) — Mark Miller announced today that he is seeking the Libertarian Party of Texas’ nomination for Texas Railroad Commissioner in 2016.

Dr. Miller was the 2014 Libertarian nominee for Texas Railroad Commissioner and is again running for office because he believes it is imperative for the Texas Railroad Commission to serve all Texans, not just the oil and gas industry.

“As Commissioner, I promise to transform the agency by bringing increased transparency and accountability, a culture of simplification and regular review, and a new focus on surface property rights,” says Miller.

The only other announced candidate for the post is the incumbent Commission Chairman, Mr. David Porter. “During Commissioner Porter’s tenure, the Railroad Commission was embroiled in many controversies surrounding oil and gas development in Texas,” notes Miller. “Among them were appropriate regulations for wastewater wells that trigger earthquakes and eminent domain abuse by common carrier pipelines. Sadly, regulations promulgated by the Commission under Porter’s watch turned out to be nothing more than window-dressing, resulting in additional bureaucratic busy-work, but with no substantive positive effects on protecting the Texas public. Even more sadly, this appears to be the usual state of affairs at the most important of state agencies.”

There will be three public presentations of some of Dr. Miller’s thoughts on the Railroad Commission in the Dallas/Fort Worth area September 2 – 8, 2015 (www.miller4tx.com/events).

“As I look at Commissioner Porter’s issues for the 2016 campaign, where are the calls to increase transparency by changing the Commission’s name and eliminating openly-admitted crony capitalism?” questions Miller. “Where are the calls for regulatory reform that are needed for a stodgy 100+ year-old agency? And, where are the calls to better protect personal liberties by putting surface property rights on a more equal footing with mineral rights?”

“I challenge all candidates for Texas Railroad Commissioner to engage in a series of serious and spirited public debates over important issues facing the Railroad Commission,” says Miller.

Texas Railroad Commissioner is the only State executive position on the November 2016 ballot. “Texas voters should insist on open and robust public discussions befitting this immensely important position and befitting our great state,” notes Miller.

About Mark Miller:

Dr. Mark A. Miller, PE, is a native-born and long-time resident of Texas. Dr. Miller began a career in the oil and gas industry as a petroleum engineer. Later, he received a PhD from Stanford University and went on to teach petroleum engineering at the University of Texas at Austin for 18 years. After leaving UT, Dr. Miller established a worldwide petroleum engineering consulting practice and was founder and CEO/CTO of a small company that provided software to the oil and gas industry. Dr. Miller was the Libertarian Party’s 2014 nominee for Texas Railroad Commissioner.

0

AUSTIN, Texas, April 2, 2012 (SEND2PRESS NEWSWIRE) — 360 Mortgage Group, a privately owned wholesale mortgage bank, welcomes Jon Tinsley, the latest addition to 360′s growing unit of California-based account executives. In his 27 years of mortgage sales, management and operations experience, Tinsley has demonstrated an acute ability to listen, analyze, and respond with solid solutions to brokers’, loan officers’ and borrowers’ needs.

Prior to joining 360 Mortgage Group, Tinsley served as a wholesale account executive for Fremont Bank, Reunion Mortgage and MortgageIT. He has also worked in the wholesale lending division at Deutsche Bank and Western Sunrise Wells Fargo Home Mortgage and as a loan officer and manager in the retail lending for units of Eastland Mortgage, General American Mortgage, Sears Mortgage Corporation and World Savings. Tinsley earned his Bachelor of Science degree in Accounting from California State University at Fullerton.

“In conducting my ‘due diligence’ in searching for a lender, there were a number of assets the lender needed to possess — first, the technology platform; second, the quality levels of service that brokers/loan officers/processors expect; and lastly, a product mix that is compatible with the lending needs of the area,” Tinsley said. “360 Mortgage Group met all three of those assets, and I am thrilled to be part of a dynamic growing organization.”

“Jon Tinsley was always a top producing account executive for our company,” said Kymberly Gale, branch manager at MortgageIT. “He was a very important member of our team, and 360 Mortgage Group is lucky to have him.”

360 Mortgage Group Releases Closing Doc Functionality to Broker Network

0

360 Mortgage Group, LLCAUSTIN, Texas, Feb. 21, 2012 (SEND2PRESS NEWSWIRE) — 360 Mortgage Group, a privately owned wholesale mortgage bank, has announced the release of Broker Docs, a closing document clearing functionality now available online to all 360 Mortgage Group brokers. This new feature to 360 Mortgage Group’s suite of proprietary online origination tools is expected to shorten closing time by at least 50 percent.

Developed by 360 Mortgage Group Chief Operating Officer Andrew WeissMalik, Broker Docs automatically and instantaneously delivers closing instructions to a closing agent whenever a broker submits a documentation order request and a “Clear to Close” has been issued within the file. This allows closing agents to work on a file prior having a 360 Mortgage Group closer review it, thereby reducing the time required to close a file.

“Instead of having to wait on our staff to process a doc order request and deliver closing instructions to the closing agent, now the originator stays in control of the delivery of closing instructions,” WeissMalik said. “As far as we can tell, no other wholesale lender is offering this kind of tool to its brokers.”

The development of Broker Docs is the latest in a series of proprietary tools 360 Mortgage Group has developed to empower its brokers to complete as much of the origination process as possible. Previous advancements include the development of FHA Connection, which allows 360 brokers to pull case numbers directly from FHA’s portal, and an online chat tool that instantly connects brokers to a 360 account executive.

“360 Mortgage Group does not hire anyone it can’t explicitly trust to deliver zero-defect, salable loans,” WeissMalik added. “We have built our technology platform with an eye towards putting as much control as possible in the hands of our brokers, and our minuscule default rate demonstrates that trust has not been misplaced.”

Allweather Roof Names Southern Minnesota Native, Tracy Riedemann as Their Austin Branch Manager

0

Allweather RoofAUSTIN, Minn., Feb. 20, 2012 (SEND2PRESS NEWSWIRE) — Allweather Roof, based in Minneapolis is proud to announce the hiring of Tracy Riedemann as the new General Manager of its Austin operations. Riedemann brings more than 18 years of commercial roofing experience and has worked on more than 10,000 roofing projects in her career. She has a wealth of knowledge and expertise in roofing repairs, modifications, and re-roofing that adds to Allweather Roof’s Southern branch.

Riedemann is originally from Lake City and is proud to be serving her native Southern Minnesota. She specializes in service, roof maintenance, and repairing roofs that other estimators might give up on. “I love telling a client that I can save their roof,” she said. This saves her clients money and has earned her a reputation of being fair and honest.

Taking care of customers is what brought her to Allweather Roof. She explained the appreciation for the customers and the care and concern for the customers really attracted her to the company.

Riedemann hasn’t come across too many women on the branch manager level in her field, which allows her to tell more men what to do, she joked. She said that she is excited to be pioneer in the industry and loves being out on a roof giving clients great service.

“Although it is rare for a woman to hold a branch manager position, in a primarily male dominated industry, we knew we were getting the best person for the job,” said Ken Sorensen, president of Allweather Roof. “She understands how roofs perform and how ongoing maintenance can extend the life of a good roof.”

Allweather Roof specializes in Rubber (EPDM), Built-up (BUR), Thermoplastic Poly Olefin (TPO), Poly Vinyl Chloride (PVC), Modified Bitumen, and Coatings for industrial roofing projects in Minn. and throughout the Midwest.
