Republican Mark Gordon, currently serving as Wyoming’s State Treasurer, is announcing this week his intention to run for a full term as Wyoming State Treasurer. Gordon will be kicking off his campaign with a hometown celebration in Buffalo, WY yesterday and will follow with  official campaign announcements in Gillette and Cheyenne today.

Gordon was appointed to the position in November 2012 after the passing of previous treasurer Joe Meyer. Gordon was one of three names sent to Governor Mead and was selected based on his financial background and lifelong commitment to Wyoming.

As Wyoming’s treasurer, Gordon is in charge of managing, safeguarding, and investing more than $17 billion of the state’s money. Gordon said throughout the last 17 months his office has focused on keeping Wyoming’s dollars in the state. This year his office made $936.5 million in investment revenue; this investment income saves each Wyoming resident on average $1,500 in taxes.

Gordon and his wife Jennie own and operate multiple ranches in Buffalo and Kaycee. They have four grown children.
