Dr. Mark Miller
Policy Advisor – Energy
Dr. Mark Miller enjoyed a long and varied career in the oil and gas industry – petroleum engineer, University of
Texas at Austin faculty member, worldwide consultant, and small business owner. In 2014 and 2016, he was the
Libertarian Party nominee for Texas Railroad Commissioner, a position that regulates the state’s oil and gas industry.

“I look forward to providing Mark Tippetts with information and insight on important energy issues that affect Texas. I have found Mark to be well-versed in a wide range of policy issues, particularly those related to Texas’ relationship with its most important international trading partner, Mexico. I look forward to Mark running a serious policy-oriented campaign that many Texas voters will agree with and support.“
