Justin Hornback Announces Candidacy for Oklahoma Corporation Commission 2024

Broken Arrow, OK -  May 16th, 2024 | Justin Hornback, a seasoned energy industry veteran with two decades of hands-on experience, formally announces his candidacy for the Oklahoma Corporation Commission in the upcoming 2024 elections. Hornback, who has spent 20 years immersed in the complexities and challenges of the energy sector, brings unique qualifications and a fresh perspective to the race. Setting himself apart from his opponents, Hornback positions himself as a worker from one of the largest industries regulated by the OCC, offering practical, first-hand knowledge rather than a traditional political background.

"I've known Justin Hornback through our involvement in regional energy conferences and the Market Development Committee of a State Oil and Gas Association. In the oil and gas industry, he's shown dedication to infrastructure development and has effectively navigated complex challenges like permitting obstacles. Justin's leadership helped secure crucial permits for local projects, demonstrating his ability to mobilize stakeholders and drive collaboration," said former colleague Sandy Spencer. "His work ethic, tenacity, and passion for the industry are admirable. I affirm Justin's character and capabilities, confident in his leadership and commitment to the industry both nationally and in Oklahoma."

Industry Expertise, Transparency, and Integrity

Justin Hornback brings two decades of hands-on experience in the energy industry, with extensive knowledge in transmission pipelines, energy generation, regulations, and safety. His background includes working directly with regulatory commissions and lawmakers to secure pipeline permits, showcasing his capability to address Oklahoma's regulatory challenges.

Hornback emphasizes the importance of transparency, pledging open and honest communication with the public. He aims to provide access to information, hold public hearings, and actively engage with citizens to build trust and accountability in the Commission's decisions.

Committed to the highest standards of accountability, Hornback refuses PAC donations and endorsements, ensuring his actions and words are independent and focused on serving Oklahomans. He prioritizes open communication, actively listening to public concerns, and considering feedback on energy policies and regulations.

"Together, through open communication, we can work towards a more inclusive and responsive energy regulatory framework that serves the needs of all Oklahomans," says Hornback.

Upcoming Primary

The Republican Primary for the Oklahoma Corporation Commission is set for June 18th, with early voting beginning on June 13th. Voters are encouraged to find their early voting locations and use the OK Voter Portal to locate polling places and view sample ballots.
