Written by Andrew-Rossi on March 22, 2018
A local businesswoman has announced her bid for the Wyoming State Legislature.
Sandy Newsome, who with her husband Bob owns several retail properties in downtown Cody, announced this week her bid for House District 24, which runs from the west half of Cody through to Mammoth Hot Springs in Yellowstone National Park.
With experience in business management, as well as sitting on economic development and tourism boards both locally and at the state level, Newsome told KODI that that experience is key in representing Park County in Cheyenne.
Newsome, who was appointed by Governor Matt Mead to serve on the Commission of Judicial Conduct and Ethics, also serves as treasurer of the Park County Republican Women’s organization, and serves on the Forward Cody Board, of which she is a past chairman. She points out that although tourism is important, other aspects of economic development must also be considered and represented at the state level.
Newsome is running for the seat currently occupied by Scott Court, who just completed his first term in office.
