Wyoming Residents Invited to Sportsmen’s Candidate Forum
Written by Caleb Nelson on July 26, 2022
Coming up on August 10th, Wyoming residents and voters will have the opportunity to hear from state legislative candidates running for office in House Districts 24, 25, and 50 as well as Senate District 19. Regional legislative candidates will share their views on important conservation issues.
The Sportsmen’s Candidate Forum, hosted by the Theodore Roosevelt Conservation Partnership (TRCP) and the Wyoming Wildlife Federation (WWF), is set to take place in Cody, Wyoming at the Park County Library’s Grizzly Hall from 5:00 p.m. to 8:45 p.m.
Founded in 2002, the TRCP is the largest coalition of conservation organizations in the country, uniting and amplifying the voices of sportsmen and women by convening hunting and fishing groups, conservation organizations, and outdoor businesses to a common purpose.
“The wildlife and wild landscapes found in our state are core to the Wyoming way of life, and we look forward to hearing candidates’ perspectives on issues that matter to hunters and anglers,” Wyoming Community Partnerships Coordinator (TRCP) Josh Metten says.
The candidates will have the opportunity to answer four specific questions provided prior to the event and up to three audience questions if time allows.
“The WWF and TRCP are committed to a respectful, prompt, and informational forum for all participants,” Government Affairs Director (WWF) Jessi Johnson says. “Thoughtful and meaningful discourse with elected officials is woven into the fabric of American governance, and we’re here to facilitate that for the sporting community” she adds.
Founded in 1937, the WWF is the oldest and largest sportsmen’s advocacy and conservation organization in the state of Wyoming.
Wyoming sportsmen and sportswomen, along with interested community members, are invited to attend this free public forum. To register, click here.
