About the Wyoming Prosperity Project
The Wyoming Prosperity Project (WP2) is a non-partisan effort dedicated to research and dissemination of information on the attitudes of Wyoming's legislators, candidates and state elected officials on matters affecting businesses and their employees.
WP2 promotes good government by helping employers and their employees learn about the people and policies that impact their jobs by providing tools to shape political and policy outcomes. The Wyoming Prosperity Project's goal is to create a more accountable democracy, improved economy and better quality life in the state.
Partners in the Wyoming P2 Project are Wyoming Chamber Parternship (WCP) and Business Industry Political Action Committee (BIPAC).
The Presidential election has taken up most of the airwaves, and there hasn't been a lot of talk about all of the other races taking place this year. Did you know that 45 of the nation's 100 largest cities are holding municipal elections? And that over 80% of the country's State House seats are up for grabs?
While the Presidential contest is important and the outcome will play a large role in the future of our nation's policy, it's not the only race on the ballot. We know that some of you may be turned off from politics - we've all seen the mudslinging and infighting on both sides of the aisle. But it's important to remember, that even if you uncertain about voting for the presidential candidates, there are a lot of other things to consider.
Local and state officials have a direct impact on your daily life. These positions range from Tax Commissioner to Sheriff and Judge to State Senator. There are over 13,500 school district governments. And that's just the start - there's a lot happening in your county and state
