We were the only Libertarian candidate to pay the filing fee. Thanks to all who helped.
"Texas Libertarians, I'd like your support to run for Governor again in 2022."
My name is Mark Tippetts, and I was the Libertarian Party's 2018 nominee for Governor of Texas. I hope to build on our 2018 campaign and to represent you again in 2022.
I want to make Texas an even better place for everyone.
I am bilingual and bi-cultural. I am an International Legal & Business Consultant for businesses and individuals that own property and/or do business in Mexico and Latin America. Making enemies with our southern neighbors and erecting walls between us is counterproductive, insulting, and foolish. I support free markets, free trade, civil liberties, and peace.
I represented the Libertarian Party on the ballot in 2010 for Travis County Judge. In 2017, I was appointed to city council in Lago Vista, Texas. I know what it means to hold office and stand on principles even when there is a political cost.
I have a background in law, business, project development, and project management. I have a Bachelors of Law and a Masters in Administration from San Luis Potosi, Mexico. Over the past 30 years, I have established, developed, and operated several companies including a hydroelectric plant in Belize and a law firm in Monterrey, Mexico. Throughout my career, I have effectively communicated and successfully partnered with many private and government entities including: legal, engineering, environmental, electric and water commissions, natural resource departments, road and bridge departments, and lands departments as well as municipalities and villages. In the legal field, I have been successful in negotiating international grants, concessions, land leases, water rights, and contracts as well as litigating numerous cases.
I am a Libertarian, and I am running for Governor because I want to secure Liberty for my children, for you, and for generations of Americans to come.
