Cheyenne Democrat Marcie Kindred has announced her candidacy for Wyoming House District 8.
Kindred wants a state legislature that accurately reflects its people, and notes that Wyoming’s legislature is currently just 15% women, and hopes that her run will inspire other women and underrepresented classes to get involved in the political process. Kindred stated
“I know the only way to ensure that Wyoming values are upheld at every level of our government is for all our citizens to actively participate. Every day I have conversations with my neighbors and every day I realize what good ideas we all have-but those ideas aren’t being heard in the legislature. As a Representative, I’m committed to bridging that gap, listening to voters and bringing common sense to the legislature.”
Kindred is a 10-year resident of Cheyenne, a choir director and vocal coach, and a licensed Realtor. She and her husband Nicholas are raising four sons.
Wyoming Democratic Party Chairman Joe M. Barbuto said
“There’s an urgent need for more diverse voices in the Wyoming State Legislature. Marcie Kindred understands the challenges and opportunities that come with being a young professional raising a family in our state and will bring that perspective to working on issues facing the folks in House District 8, Cheyenne, and Wyoming. We’re excited that she’s decided to run and look forward to working with Chair Rowland and the Laramie County Democrats to flip that seat in 2020.”
