I came to Laramie at 19, attained a Bachelors in Political Science and a Master's of Public Administration from the University of Wyoming.I was not raised in Wyoming, but my first adult decision was to come home,I spent as much time in Wyoming as possible visiting family. My Uncle John Story of Dubois, and my Grandfather and Grandmother Charles and Maydeane Jones of Riverton fostered and grew my love of Wyoming, and the outdoors from a young age.

If elected, what would be your priorities in office?
The legislature needs to be more solution oriented to our residents' needs! Very often in policy it is much better to regulate less. This means solving issues at the most local level possible by removing any barriers the government has often placed in their way. I would advocate comprehensive fiscal accountability, diversification of taxation basis, without placing that burden on residents. Then lastly for the Innovation of Wyoming Industries.

Does Wyoming need to consider a state income tax or otherwise diversify its revenue?
No, the last thing Wyoming should do is to implement a state income tax. I also strongly oppose returning the taxation on food stuffs. Wyoming needs to value, protect and defend all of its industries for taxation revenue. One example is wind taxation, while incentives are almost always a good idea, taxation loopholes that allow corporations to profit and not pay a penny in tax is unacceptable. Medical Marijuana would also provide a large taxation basis, as those residents who purchase it will continue to do so, no matter where they must travel to do so.
My Grandsons’ Birthday is in December, under the old wording of the law (hunters had to wait till their birth date itself to hunt) he would not of been able to hunt until next year (2023, when he turns 13), while his classmates, and other family members would be able to hunt this year. So, In the 2020 legislative session I worked with members of the legislature, members of Game and Fish, other conservation groups and lobbyists to change the law, to state children can hunt WITHIN THE YEAR they turn 12, under the updated law my grandson harvested a very nice black bear in his first spring hunt this year! Wyoming is my home, and I love this state, and its people. I want to be able to solve issues for my whole district.
