Tim Hagan has been the treasurer of the Libertarian National Committee since 2012, and serves as treasurer for the Libertarian Party of Nevada as well. He moved to the Silver State in 1993 to join EG&G Technical Services as an engineer, upon earning his MSEE at Georgia Tech. It was during his studies there that he kicked off his long history of leadership with the LP, when he joined Georgia Tech’s College Libertarians. Hagan has also served as the southwest regional alternate representative to the Libertarian National Committee.
Hagan has run for public office as a Libertarian in nearly every cycle since 1996, including local offices such as Clark County treasurer and Clark County assessor, five times for state office — Nevada State Senate District 5 — and most recently at the national level, running for U.S. Senate in 2018. In 2016, LP Nevada bestowed upon him the Debra C. Payne Award for Exemplary Leadership.
In 2019, Hagan retired from JT4, where he had worked as an electrical engineer in the testing and measurement of radar systems. His career has also included work for such firms as General Dynamics, Northrop, and INTELSAT, in the design, integration, and testing of radar systems, receivers, and communications satellites.
In addition to his MSEE, he earned a Management of Technology Certificate at Georgia Tech, and a BSEE, magna cum laude, from University of Missouri–Rolla (now Missouri S&T). In April 2018, Hagan was honored with induction into Missouri S&T’s Academy of Electrical and Computer Engineering.
A fan of baseball, Hagan has attended regular-season major league baseball games in dozens of stadiums across the country. He also enjoys meeting up with friends to watch his alma mater Georgia Tech’s football team, the Yellow Jackets.
