State Representative Mike Madden, in a news release Tuesday, announced he is seeking another term to serve as Representative of House District 40, which encompasses all of Johnson County and the eastern portion of Sheridan County.

In the release Madden said, “More challenges to the state fiscal situation are looming with the growing Federal impediments the state is experiencing for coal mining and oil and gas development. There is a need to have experienced people who lean toward a conservative spending philosophy to continue serving and assuming leadership positions.”

Sheridan Media contacted Madden who gave more reasons he feels he must run for office again, saying that being a legislator is “a work in progress and as you are there, you start to understand some of the pressing problems and feel the need to solve those problems.”

He explained further.

As an example, he said, you can register a motor home in Montana for a flat $175 per year, but Wyoming charges $5,000 to $7,000 a year for the same motor home. He feels that needs to be changed.

Madden is currently the chairman of the House Revenue Committee, chairman of the State Employee Compensation Commission and serves on the Select Committee on Statewide Education Accountability, the Management Audit Committee, and the Rules and Procedures Committee and is a liaison member of the Wyoming Retirement System.

Madden is a former economics professor.
He and his wife Cheryl live just outside of Buffalo.
