The April 2021 Meeting is brought to you by
Business Writer – Energy
Jack Money is a business writer for The Oklahoman in Oklahoma City who covered the energy industry in 2008 and has covered it again from 2018 through today. After starting at the paper in 1988, Jack worked his way up through the ranks to eventually cover the City of Oklahoma City, its MAPS program, its response to the bombing and the process survivors, victims’ relatives and the community used to build a national memorial and museum. After covering Oklahoma’s House of Representatives during the last session it was controlled by Democrats in 2004 and the first session it was controlled by Republicans the following year, [H]e worked for several years as an assistant city editor before moving on to covering energy in 2008. Jack left The Oklahoman in 2009 to join New Dominion, an independent oil and gas operator in Tulsa, as its director of media relations. He held that job until early 2015. He rejoined The Oklahoman as a full-time writer in November of 2016. Recently, he has spent a great deal of time writing about how Oklahomans were impacted by an unusual ice storm in late October that destroyed significant segments of electrical distribution systems operated by regulated utilities and cooperatives across much of the state, leaving many customers without power for a week or more. He also wrote extensively about February’s brutal stretch of cold weather that pushed power supplies to a breaking point across the Great Plains. While the grid overseen by the Southwest Power Pool did not fail (unlike ERCOT), many consumers across Oklahoma and the region could be paying off associated costs energy providers paid to keep power flowing during the storm for as long as the next decade. Money earned a bachelor’s degree in Journalism from the University of Central Oklahoma and is a past president of the Oklahoma City Gridiron Club and Foundation as well as a founding member and secretary of Retro Metro OKC. Jack also is the co-author of four published books involving Oklahoma City residents and their history, OKC-Second Time Around, Skirvin, Operation Scissortail and Cornerstone The YMCA of Greater Oklahoma City: 125 Years.
