John Hendrix

Yesterday, while hosting the Dave Stieren Show on FM News 103.7 KFQD, I interviewed Governor Walker regarding his hiring of former Apache Alaska General Manager John Hendrix to serve as his new Chief Oil and Gas Advisor.

Why was Hendrix brought in? What will he do in his new role? Will the Governor listen to him?

Listen to the Governor’s answers to these questions and many others here:

  1. One odd thing about Walker’s answer (that the state has never had anyone with oil and gas experience working in state government) is that he doesn’t seem to realize that his two former Commissioners of DNR, Mark Myers and Marty Rutherford, worked in the oil industry. Nor does he seem to realize that his director of the division of oil and gas, Corri Feige, also has a long history working in the industry at an executive level. In addition to these folks, there are many people in the Division that have worked for big and small oil and gas companies.
    Is Walker clueless or lying?
    In any event, Walker continues to form and expand his shadow government.
