Vote Faber and Shelstad for Campbell County Commission

I emphatically endorse and urge you to vote for Colleen Faber and Del Shelstad for Campbell County Commissioner. They deserve your support. To start, both Faber and Shelstad have been leading the effort to cut spending and prepare Campbell County for the future. That alone is worth giving them four more years.   Sure there is much left to be done, and Del Shelstad and Colleen Faber are...

Don’t fall for the ‘experience’ canard

We don’t need legislators with experience. We need legislators to cut spending and reform government. Most of the incumbents running have had more than six years in the legislature. During that exact time span, we’ve have heard of the coming fiscal crisis and the increasing pressure on Wyoming’s budget. Just what are these incumbents going to do differently they haven’t...

Lindholm led the revolt against Rep. Gray’s...

So the campaign season is here. Many candidates are already canvassing their districts. The sense is that COVID-19 absentee and early voting, which begins July 3rd, will be critical in this year’s election. Last night saw a debate for state legislative office last night in Campbell County. It was lively with the incumbents, especially Rep. Eric Barlow and Sen. Michael VonFlatern, mailing in...

Senator Tom James is a Rock Star

If you don’t know Senator Tom James, a Republican representing Sweetwater County, you should. He’s helped improve the transparency of Wyoming government spending more in his first term than just about any other politician. OpenTheBooks.com has been for three years trying to shed light on where the spending in Wyoming is centered. They’ve done great work in providing...
