Dr. Mark Miller
Policy Advisor – Energy
Dr. Mark Miller enjoyed a long 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. In 2016 Dr. Miller received the endorsements of all of Texas’ major newspapers, garnering sufficient votes for the Libertarian Party to retain ballot access.
“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.”
Pat Dixon was chair of LPTexas from 2004-2014, documented in his book “Primary Screenout”. He served on the LP national committee and as chair of the Libertarian State Leadership Association. He was twice elected to city council in Lago Vista, Texas. At the 2016 LP national convention he was awarded the Thomas Jefferson leadership award.
“Talk is cheap. Libertarian principles are truly tested when actions in public office affect lives. Mark has been there. He knows that decisions based on Libertarian principles are sometimes unpopular, but the top of our ticket needs to represent us and have the experience to do the job. Mark is the best candidate for the job and I am proud to be his campaign manager.”
