(Riverton, WY) – 4th generation Wyoming native Kristi Racines announced her State Auditor re-election bid in her hometown of Riverton on Saturday, March 19, before the Fremont County Republican Party Convention. With a level head and demonstrated conservative values for fiscal accountability and responsibility, Racines said she is the right person for an important statewide job that shouldn’t be overlooked.
“This office is important to this Republican Party and important to the people of Wyoming. During the last 3 1⁄2 years, we walked our talk of fiscal accountability daily, with every step. We scrutinized every line item, every entry, every dollar,” said Racines.
A licensed Certified Public Accountant and experienced auditor, Racines made headlines in her first term as a staunch transparency advocate. During her first 30 days in office, she produced and turned over six years’ worth of state expenditure data which was previously mired in a legal battle. Within six months, Kristi debuted Wyopen.gov – Wyoming’s online checkbook – with no additional cost to taxpayers.
“I made a lot of campaign promises four years ago, and I’m proud to say I’ve kept every one of them. We have more work to do, and that’s why I’m seeking reelection. The last few years have been hard. Hard on our businesses, hard on our families, hard on our bank accounts. It’s more important than ever to maintain Wyoming’s fiscal health and think mindfully about our future. We have a job to do. For ourselves. For our children. For our grandchildren. I’m asking voters to let me do my part to move Wyoming forward,” said Racines. “I believe in conservative, cost-effective government. I will continue to uphold the sound and clear fiscally conservative values of Wyoming taxpayers.”
The Wyoming Primary Election will be held on August 16, 2022.
