Mark Tippetts, Libertarian for Governor of Texas
My name is Mark Tippetts, and I am the Libertarian Party’s candidate for Governor of Texas.
I am running to represent every Texan. I want to stop the politics of hate, fear, and anger, and to help break the two-party duopoly that continues to give power to politicians who make promises and then do nothing for Texas when they are elected. I wish to bring balance to our political system.
I am bilingual and bi-cultural. I am an International Legal & Business Consultant for businesses and individuals that own property 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 believe someone needs to be on the ballot that believes in building bridges not walls, while holding fast to the principles of individual liberty.
I represented the Libertarian Party on the ballot in 2010 for Travis County Judge and in 2018 for Governor of Texas. 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 Bachelor 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 Hydro Electric Plant in Belize, Central America 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, lands departments, road and bridge departments, municipalities, and villages. In the legal field, I have been successful in negotiating international grants, concessions, land leases, water rights, contracts, and I have litigated numerous cases.
I am a Libertarian father of 6 and grandfather of 7, and I am running for governor because I want to secure liberty for my children, grandchildren, and generations of Americans to come.
