Garey Bies (born 1946) is a Republican Party member of the Wisconsin State Assembly, representing the 1st Assembly District since 2000. He serves as a member of the committees on Natural Resources, Tourism, Recreation, and State Property; Transportation, Veterans and Military Affairs, and as the chair of the Committee on Corrections and Courts.
Bies was born in Manitowoc, graduated from Lincoln High School, and later earned an associates degree from Northeast Technical College. He served in the Navy for five years and worked in law enforcement for 30 years, retiring as chief deputy sheriff of Door County. He is seeking his 7th term in the Assembly and is running against Democrat Patrick Veeser.
Bies has deplored what he sees as the one-sided lack of civility exhibited by Democrats during the 2011-2012 Assembly sessions. He voted for tax cuts for businesses to attract new businesses to Wisconsin and to encourage the expansion of existing businesses. He believes that the purpose of government is to "lay the rules down to protect the people".
