Come find out what’s happening in Carson City. What’s happening in Carson City politics? Come Meet John Tsarpalas.
John Tsarpalas is the President of the Nevada Policy Research Institute and is deeply committed to spreading limited government ideas and policy to create a better, more prosperous Nevada for all.
John spent the first 25 years of his career as a commercial construction contractor in Chicago. As government regulations and state and local taxes expanded exponentially in his home state of Illinois, he realized that, as a business owner, he had to became more active in the world of politics.
In 1996, when Newt Gingrich drafted the Contract with America, John became active in Republican political campaigns. After five campaigns where his candidates were the only Republicans elected in Democrat districts, he was recruited to become the Executive Director of the Illinois Republican Party in 2005. As Executive Director he graduated from the Republican National Committee’s Campaign College and the RNC’s Field Management School.
After being terribly disappointed by Republican votes in the Illinois State House and Congress, John left the party to pursue alternate routes to making change. As President of the Sam Adams Alliance the focus was on educating activists and building support organizations to help the free enterprise and limited government movements in 10 states. On the national level he was part of the team that started the Franklin Center for Government & Public Integrity and American Majority with chapters in 23 states.
After the Sam Adams Alliance, John partnered to start the following educational not-for-profits: Think Freely Media, the Haym Salomon Center for Jewish American Thought, and Midwest Speaking Professionals.
A former native of the economically and politically bankrupt state of Illinois, John now lives in Henderson, Nevada, with his wife of 41 years.
