About Former Governor and Presidential Candidate Gary Johnson
Governor of New Mexico from 1995-2003, Gary Johnson believes that public policy decisions should be based on costs and benefits, rather than strict ideology. 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. 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, 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.
