Why I’m Running

My name is Debbie Bovee and I am a proud Wyoming native. My late husband, Harold, and I raised two wonderful children here. They both live and work in Casper and are raising my grandchildren here. I worked for the past 38 years as a teacher in Guernsey, Torrington and Casper. After retiring I decided to pursue the House District 36 seat because I believe the voters deserve a Representative that will work for them regardless of their party affiliation. During the last legislative session, when so many important votes were cast that impacted people’s lives, I worked with all of my colleagues to pass meaningful legislation. The people of House District 36 deserve a representative who will listen to their concerns and take them to Cheyenne and I will continue to do that.

I care so much about Wyoming and about the issues that so many of us find important. Wyoming is at a crossroads, our working families are being asked to do more with less. We need to invest in what is unique to Wyoming – our people, our schools, our communities and our wide-open spaces – and build an economy that works for everyone.

Here are some of my stances on key issues facing Wyoming:

1.) I support the oil and gas industry. I understand how much they contribute to Wyoming’s economy. However, I also believe in strengthening and growing our economy by making sure we provide diverse economic opportunities for both men and women in the equality state.

2) My family enjoys many outdoor activities such as camping, hunting, and fishing that this state offers. We are vested in this state. Protecting our state’s public lands and keeping them in public hands in paramount to ensuring that our families can enjoy the beautiful and vast outdoors of Wyoming for generations to come.

3) After 38 years of teaching I know firsthand how important adequately funding our education system is. I believe all of our citizens deserve access to good schools, pre-school through post-secondary. Wyoming has historically supported our public education programs, making our schools some of the best in the nation, at the end of the day cutting funding to education hurts not only our children but it hurts our state.

4)  I sponsored and passed a bill concerning patient/healthcare provider protections.  All Wyomingites need to have access to healthcare of all types.

When re-elected as the Representative for House District 36 I pledge to be responsible, responsive and respectful. Meaning I believe in a strong work ethic and will attend and actively participate during the legislative session and meetings. I want all of my constituents to know that I will consider their expressed viewpoint and am available to talk about the issues they may face regardless of party affiliation. Finally, I believe in mutual respect, despite differing opinions.

 

I am a Wyoming Democrat that works across the aisle.
