Bringing common sense, collaboration and compassion, Casper businessman looks to HD 58

(Casper, Wyo.) - One of his weaknesses, technology. "The flip phone, it has got to go, and I will work to stay up with the times and embrace the changes Wyoming faces," said Casper businessman, Pat Sweeney as he announced this morning that he will be entering the race for the House District seat 58, as Tom Reeder steps down. "With commonsense, collaboration, and compassion, I hope to listen to my constituents and bring those concerns and issues to the committee. Good leaders listen and that is what I am going to do, " said Sweeney at the Ramkota. He continued to report that he has dedicated his life to business and creating jobs and he aims to put Wyoming's hard working people first. Sweeney reported that he supports economic development and is a supporter of the coal industry. "Wyoming truly is a mineral industry and we thrive in mineral tax monies. The energies fuel our state and our education. I aim to streamline state government and show them that we must live within our means." "I don't have all the answers, but I will work to listen to constituents with compassion and fight for a solution." As for Medicaid expansion, Sweeney commented, "Frankly, we cannot afford it, but it can be fixed to make it work. I love to think that if it could be repealed and then replaced with a viable option, we could make it work." He does not want to be a law marker in Cheyenne, but a representative of Natrona County. Sweeney then took question from the public. #oilcity #news
