Meet your Democratic candidates!
Throne, a former legislator, is campaigning with a focus on lifting Wyoming out of a boom or bust economy. She says, “Today’s problems deserve better than yesterday’s thinking.”
My wife Terry and I moved to Wyoming 28 years ago. As we like to say, we had to be with our moms on the day we were born, but we got here as soon as we could. We have two Wyoming native sons – Ben (age 25) and Aaron (age 18). I am a businessperson and entrepreneur with deep elected and community service experience in my local community. We all know DC is dysfunctional; it takes leadership ability, courage and integrity to to find others with the same traits who will put #CountryB4Party and then to work together to get things back on track. My entire professional and community service career has been predicated on these traits and finding ways to work with others to fix dysfunction and act in good faith on behalf of the people I serve.
"For too long, our representatives in Washington, DC have contributed to a corrupt culture of valuing those with financial means over the common voter. I'm running for Congress to restore power to the people and put an end to pay-to-play politics. As your representative, I will always put you first and advocate for the issues you care most about. If you're ready to own your own Congressman for a change, I'd appreciate your vote on August 21st."
I grew up in the rural farming and ranching town of Circle, Montana, working on the family farm until it was sold in 1990. My interest in politics and public service began at an early age, first with my grandfather who was the mayor of Circle in the late 60’s and early 70’s and later going door-to-door with my father handing out brochures when he ran for a house seat in Colorado in the early 80’s. In college, I studied political science with a dream of one day, running for political office. I went on to earn my bachelor's degree in political science from the University of Montana and later my master's degree in public administration from the University of Wyoming.
I have lived in Wyoming nearly my entire life and I know the fiduciary responsibilities of the $20 billion managed by the Treasurer’s office is important to the people of Wyoming. As a single father I know how to set priorities, work hard to achieve positive results, and make sacrifices for the best interests of my family. My education and experience as a chemist has taught me to be detail-oriented and able to make informed, data-driven solutions. As State Treasurer, I want to continue the positive things that have been achieved by our award-winning office and still look for ways we can improve and become more efficient.
