Jacki Pick, a local Dallas resident, is the host of The Jacki Daily Show. She also has an extensive career in energy, law, and politics. Jacki has served as General Counsel to an engineering firm specializing in energy, national security, and environmental cleanup. She has also served many years as legal counsel on Capitol Hill to the Chairman of the Subcommittee on the Constitution, and the former Ranking Member of the Commercial and Administrative Law Subcommittee, advising on the oversight of federal agencies. Jacki discusses fossil fuels and their intimate connection with the global economy and international policy. Her opinions may be controversial for some, but Jacki argues that everyone should do their research on the facts before forming an opinion based on populist opinion and the media hype.
