Wyoming Petroleum Marketers Association
The Wyoming Petroleum Marketers Association and Convenience Store Association (WPMA) endorses Bill Winney for House District 22. When considering a candidate for endorsement, WPMA takes into consideration many elements. Primarily, the candidate must demonstrate that they are prepared to take on the difficult task of crafting the laws of the state and implementing a budget that fits within the appropriate role of government and the Constitution.
Bill Winney has been observing and participating in the legislature for over twelve years in a voluntary capacity and has honed skills and knowledge uncommon of most candidates and even current legislators. He has been honored for his participation by the President of the Senate and Speaker of the House. The fact that Bill was responsible for budgets the size of Wyoming's while serving in the U.S. Navy in the Pentagon and as a nuclear submarine Captain, further reflects the training and experience "Captain" Winney represents. He will hit the ground running if elected.
A second quality that WPMA observes in Winney that sets him apart from his opponent is his conservative values in concert with common sense and a deep love of Wyoming. Bill is pragmatic about programs that deliver "quality of life" impacts on the state and our future such as education, health care and his insistence on the state being good environment stewards of our natural resources.
Importantly, Bill recognizes that, while he has extensive experience, he is seeking to run for office representing ALL constituents in HD-22 and that "You never know where the good ideas come from," all voices matter. WPMA has long supported those legislators that focus on the issue at hand and its potential impact on their constituents, the District and the state. Wyoming has far too many legislators that have signed pledges on many topics that bind that legislator’s vote without care or consideration of the constituents they represent. Bill Winney has "pledged" to engage his constituents and listen to every aspect of pending legislation and not be bound by pledges to special interest, self-serving, myopic organizations.
Bill Winney is tested, experienced, open-minded, and dedicated to HD-22. With the state facing unprecedented times with COVID-19 and the decay of the extractive minerals markets, voters must send a State Representative that reflects the values of the district who is a recognized voice in policy development. Bill Winney has earned our endorsement and we urge your vote in November. Please support and vote for Bill Winney for House District 22.

Letter of Support
La Velle Van Voast
I support Bill Winney as candidate for the House District 22 House seat in Sublette County. Bill acquired a great deal of experience while serving in the United States Navy and he uses the knowledge and skills from his professional career as he serves as a volunteer who attends the Wyoming legislative sessions.
I most admire Bill for his selfless commitment and dedication to the state of Wyoming as a resident, volunteer, and speaking up in Public Comment in front of committees. I met Bill during the legislative sessions and observed his tireless efforts to speak out in various committees about the issues that matter most to him. He is an excellent example of a concerned and caring Wyoming resident.
Over these past two years, the public and I have had the opportunity to observe Bill’s dedication to the great state of Wyoming. His honest, pragmatic, and hopeful insight into our state’s problems and needs, and his willingness to examine the issues and listen closely during legislative committee meetings, sets him far apart from other candidates' expected techniques and talk. I am writing today, with proud enthusiasm, to express my support for his campaign as a candidate for the Wyoming House of Representatives and my intention to spread word to others of the value of his policies and abilities.

I have always admired Bill Winney for his attendance at the legislative sessions. He can always be found attending a committee meeting or in the legislative gallery. He attends on his own dime and testifies on a variety of issues. That says a lot. He is very respectful and thoughtful in his testimony. Bill Winney is to be complimented for his participation in the legislative process.

...And thank you very much for your time and thoughtfulness over the years. Bill Winney

Republican Voters of House District 22,
This letter is sent as a letter of support for the Republican nomination of Bill Winney in House District 22.
I have had the pleasure of getting to know Bill over the past 4 years of my service in the Wyoming Legislature. I am not sure that there is a more devout citizen to the process and involvement of the legislative process than Bill Winney.
Bill has a vast array of knowledge from his time in the Navy that he brings to nearly all committees. His expansive experience has helped shape and develop policies over the past 4 years that I have been involved and I appreciate his words of wisdom and knowledge.
I believe Bill has a great understanding of what it takes to draft, develop, and pass good legislation for our state. As a Republican, I believe he is the right fit for the Republican nomination for House District 22. I would encourage your support and vote for Bill Winney on August 18, 2020 for the Republican nomination for House District 22 Representative.
Sincerely, Landon J. Brown [HD-09, Republican]
