State Representative Mike Madden (R-Buffalo) has announced that he will not seek re-election this year to represent House District 40.

In a news release Madden said, “It was a privilege and honor of a lifetime to have served these last 12 years in the Wyoming Legislature. It is hard to express how grateful I am to have been entrusted in this position for six terms.”

Madden said he was most proud of his work to make Wyoming's schools better, investing in the local communities in the state, and in making the state's highways safer.
He has strived to “strike a blance for what is best for the citizens of House District 40 as well as the state as a whole.”

Madden, in an interview with Sheridan Media, said he was pleased he could serve for six terms in the state legislature, but is looking forward to having some more free time, although he plans on staying busy after his current term is up in January.

Representative Madden has served as chairman of the House Revenue Committee over the past 7 years.
He also presently serves as chairman of the Select Committee on Capital Finance and Investment and chairman of the Legislative Management Audit Committee.
He was additionally past chairman of the State Employee Compensation Committee.

He has served on the Select Water Committee, Select Committee on Education Accountability, the Education and Transportation Standing Committees as well as the State Retirement Board among others.
