I am proud of the service provided to our county this last legislative session.  I provided financial leadership that helped balanced a budget with a $ 90 million deficit while defending the University of Wyoming from further cuts. I voted to keep the quality of education high and supported hard working teachers through the lowest level of cuts. I supported new energy companies to create jobs by voting against new taxes. I supported the Ag industry by voting to allow them to offer new products.  I supported new economic development by voting for the ENDOW initiatives and for the Wyoming Business Council. I supported the tourism industry by my votes in committee.   I was appointed to three committees where much of the work of the legislature is done.  I was appointed to Corporations, Elections and Political Subdivisions; Revenue; and Capital and Investments Committee.  Through these committees as well as during the general sessions, I was able to support our County, City, University of Wyoming, Wyo Tech and Economic Development.

My Legislative Experience will help attain these priorities
