LYNNETTE'S POLICY POSITIONS:
The fact is that nobody knows what the practical political realities of the future hold. But regardless of the path forward — whether it be through another four years of a Republican Presidency, or in the wake of a blue wave that washes through the House, Senate, and White House - Lynnette will take a pragmatic approach . . .
Both of these are true: extractive industries have enormous influence in the State of Wyoming, but the need for a just transition away from these industries in order to address the National Security crisis and existential threat of Climate Change is more pressing than ever. Though extractive industry is antithetical to traditional indigenous beliefs, Lynnette recognizes that we
can’t just obliterate an economic sector overnight . . .
The largest single landholder in the State of Wyoming is the Bureau of Land Management (BLM) that, throughout the Trump administration, has become nothing more than a realtor for multinational corporations. And not only has the BLM become a realtor for multinational companies, but they’re a bad realtor that is effectively giving away the State of Wyoming for free . . .
In the wake of the COVID-19 pandemic, and a recession rivaling the Great Depression, public transportation in Wyoming will be a crucial piece of recovering our state’s economy. If people cannot afford gas or vehicle payments and are unable to get to work or access employment, this will only further stagnate the economy and . . .
In the wake of COVID-19, no Wyoming rancher or farmer should have to destroy their produce or stock due to the pandemics devastating impact on the food industry. Lynnette has a practical solution . . .
Lynnette believes that law enforcement must look like the communities they are serving across Wyoming - which means that where there is an indigenous community, there needs to be Native representation among those officers. Likewise in Jackson, where there is a larger Hispanic population, there needs to be Hispanic officers. This standard must be reflected across . . .
Wyoming has the opportunity to serve our entire nation as an example of what fair education can look like. Our state is a model for equitable school funding that does not depend on local property taxes, which so often lead to unequal school facilities. Although we can serve as leaders nationally in the push to create more fair school systems across the country, we still have plenty of room to grow in making sure that all Wyomingites have equal access to education, affordable routes towards college, and to ensuring that our teachers and other educational support professionals have . . .
Every LGBTQ+ citizen in our country deserves to live in a state where they will not be harmed, fired, or discriminated against for who they are or who they love. We believe that Wyoming can be that state: a place where the contributions of LGBTQ+ people are not just tolerated, but celebrated and protected as part of the unique fabric that makes Wyoming, Wyoming . . .
