(Dubois, Wyo.) – A primary election race is shaping up in HD 34 with a fourth candidate tossing their hat into the ring.
“I am announcing today my candidacy for the State Legislature in House District 34 as a Republican from Dubois,” said a statement issued by Tim Salazar of Dubois, who narrowly lost an election for county commissioner two years ago.
Salazar now joins Dubois resident Pat L. Moore and incumbent legislator Rita Campbell of Shoshoni in the Republican primary race. Frank Lajeunesse of Riverton has also filed.
“I run because I believe our Constitutional Rights are systematically being taken from us by an out of control Federal Government. I believe the Federal assault on Wyoming Coal & Petroleum, Ranching & Farming industry, the 2nd Amendment, Private Property Rights, local control of Education, & our Land and Resources must be stopped. I believe the State Legislature must defend our citizens & local businesses against this Federal intrusion,” Salazar said in his announcement.
“I am a small business owner in Dubois & have also spent the last 25 years as a United States Army Officer in the US Army Reserve. I currently sit on the board of the Dubois Senior Center (High Country Senior Center); I’m a member of the Dubois Lions Club; Dubois Volunteers Inc.; Commander, Dubois American Legion Post 31 & Republican Precinct Committeeman & County delegate from Dubois. I ran for Fremont County Commissioner two years ago and lost by 60 votes before a special election was called.”
