ABOUT GARY JOHNSON (HQ) Gary Johnson, who has been called the ‘most fiscally conservative Governor’ in the country, was the Republican Governor of New Mexico from 1995-2003. Governor Johnson brings a distinctly business-like mentality to governing, believing that public policy decisions should be based on costs and benefits, rather than strict ideology. HISTORY & FAMLY A successful businessman before running for Governor of New Mexico in 1994, Gary Johnson started a door-to-door handyman business to help pay his way through college. Twenty years later, he had grown that business into one of the largest construction companies in New Mexico, with more than 1,000 employees. Not surprisingly, Governor Johnson brings a distinctly business-like mentality to governing, believing that decisions should be made based on cost-benefit analysis rather than strict ideology. Johnson is best known for his veto record, which includes over 750 vetoes during his time in office, more than all other governors combined. His use of the veto pen earned him the nickname “Governor Veto.” He cut taxes 14 times while never raising them. When he left office, New Mexico was one of only four states in the country with a balanced budget. Term-limited, Johnson retired from public office in 2003. An avid skier, adventurer, and bicyclist, he has climbed the highest peak on five of the seven continents, including Mt. Everest. In 2009, becoming increasingly concerned about the country’s out-of-control national debt and precarious financial situation, the Governor formed the OUR America Initiative, a 501(c)4 non-profit organization that promotes fiscal responsibility, civil liberties, and rational public policy. He traveled to more than 30 states and spoke to more than 150 conservative and libertarian groups during his time as Honorary Chairman. In the 2012 presidential election, Johnson garnered more votes than any other Libertarian candidate in history. He has two grown children -- a daughter Seah and a son Erik, and currently resides in a house he built himself in Taos, New Mexico. PERSONAL ACCOMPLISHMENTS Scaled the highest peaks of 5 continents, including Everest. Competed in the Bataan Memorial Death March, a 25-mile desert run in combat boots wearing a 35 pound backpack. Participated in Hawaii’s invitation-only Ironman Triathlon Championship several times. Mountain biked the eight day Adidas TransAlps Challenge in Europe.
