In front of family, friends and supporters, Wyoming Governor Matt Mead announced his plans to run for a second term.The Governor said the decision to run was “not made lightly,” and comes with the blessing and support of his wife and children.

The Governor said he is proud of what he accomplished in his first term and emphasized his strong commitment to strengthening the state’s economy by supporting economic diversification and investing in roads, schools communities and broadband.

With broad public and industry participation, the state released an Energy Strategy last May. Mead added it is now time to engage the public in developing a Water Strategy. The Water Strategy, including water projects, big and small and for all users, will remain a focus for his second term.

Mead faces two declared opponents in the Aug. 19 Republican party primary: State Superintendent of Public Instruction Cindy Hill and Taylor Haynes, a Cheyenne doctor who has served on the Board of Trustees at the University of Wyoming. So far no Democrat has announced a run for governor.
