WDOC Correctional Officer Jason Senteney to run for Wyoming House seat

Jason A. Senteney of Yoder announced his intentions to run for the U.S. Representative for Wyoming's at-large congressional district seat in 2016. The 37-year-old born in Torrington, Wyo., and a current resident of Yoder, Wyoming, is a Correctional Officer with Wyoming Department of Corrections and Field Officer with the Wyoming Federal Correctional Institution. He has two daughters, who he said were main reasons as to why he is running for Congress. "I'm doing it for my daughters. They're part of the future generation, and we need to start making changes now." Senteney graduated from West Texas A&M University majoring in mass communication with an emphasis on broadcasting. He has been a business professional who has managed multi-million-dollar businesses and has worked for NBC and FOX news in Texas as a photojournalist. Senteney also worked as a farmhand for a family friend, and volunteered for the Yoder Fire Department. ​*​h/t: Jason A. Senteney/Pitchengine Communities* Senteney previously ran for Congress in 2014, in which he received about 25 percent of the vote. The campaign he ran was paid out of pocket. During that run, Senteney said that it basically told him that "we have real problems in Washington." He began studying politics at the age of 18 as soon as he joined the Marine Corps. in 1996. This is when he began to realize that "we need to get back to revitalizing infrastructure and investing in ourselves." If elected into office, his first order of business would be to introduce the Healthcare Freedom Act, which repeals the Obamacare mandate itself, and instead looks towards the National Exchange rather than the state-by-state exchange. "Using one national exchange would make sure all health insurance providers are to participate. It will help drive down the costs," said Senteney. Next would be the "Invest in America Act, all federal government entities can only use United States contractors and manufacturers for their goods. We need to stop overseas contracting, and instead increase the U.S. job market." Senteney also stated that he would like to push for term limits; no more than three terms in the House and two terms in the Senate. It would be good for members of congress. He said he would like to look into regulations so we don't have another economic meltdown. "I want to get back to where we were years ago when government did actually work, when we did what was best for the country first," said Senteney. "You Deserve to be Truly Represented," reads Senteney's campaign slogan, and he said: "I want to truly represent hard-working individuals." *​h/t: Jason A.
