Candidate for Governor of Texas
My name is Mark Tippetts and I'm proud to be the Libertarian Party's nominee for Governor of Texas.
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 school choice, free markets, free trade, civil liberties, and peace.
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.
