“TPL shareholders deserve to hear directly from me, and I look forward to answering their questions and addressing what is at stake during this important election,” said General Cook. “While serving on the boards of numerous large public and private companies over the years, one critical lesson I learned is that, at the helm of any successful company, you will find directors who are knowledgeable, professional, experienced in governance and committed to carefully evaluating a company’s growth strategy.”

I agree with the shareholders who made their voices heard in recent months and believe that what is needed most at this point in TPL’s history is expertise in corporate governance, with a focus on ensuring that the TPL team has the right resources and oversight to continue working safely and effectively. An understanding of the E&P landscape may be relevant, but as TPL expands its water services business and considers all aspects of its future, what is more important is a Trustee who has experience evaluating a wide range of situations, strategies and options for a ~$7 billion market cap public company. As a highly-experienced public and private company director, I have participated in several processes to prudently consider strategic options. In all modesty, I am the only nominee that brings that kind of experience to TPL.
More transparency from the Trust. Will submit some questions and will certainly watch.
