Biography

Education

Private Sector

His parents own and operate Farmers Implements Co. Inc., which has been owned by their family since 1915.

Gardner's personal contributions have been described by Oil & Gas special interest group National Ocean Industries Association (NOIA) as:

"He grew up working in his family’s farm implement dealership where he did everything from sweeping the floors to managing the books and ordering inventory."

Nothing much can be found elsewhere, not even on his own official websites.

He also briefly served as a spokesman for the National Corn Growers Association.


Government

His biography is unclear about his private sector background both in terms of scope and timeline, but what is certain is he graduated from law school in 2001 and began working as General Counsel and Legislative Director for then-Senator Wayne Allard in 2002, where he remained until 2005 when he was appointed State Representative to District 63.
