Haynes For Wyoming

Why am I running for Governor? 

I am the first person running for office to promote Wyoming’s sovereignty and the absolute need to establish a “constitutional” relationship with the Federal Government. The vision I have shared with Wyoming voters for a prosperous and free Wyoming, has shown signs of coming to life. I have learned to work effectively with the Legislators. The passage of HB209 by the 2015 Wyoming House, the introduction of HB142, during the 2016 Budget session and the introduction of SJ0009 in the 2017 Legislature indicates that many Legislators agree it is time for Wyoming to realize her full potential and enjoy all the benefits she is due as a State.

The ground work for this was laid in the 1970s and thus the “Sagebrush Rebellion” statutes were passed and are today on our books. These are the Title 36 Statutes. I will seek a Constitutional amendment to insure that these “Multiple Use” lands remain in state hands as long as Wyoming is a State.

I have the education and on-the-ground experience to facilitate this evolution. Working with the Legislature and using our Constitutional rights for good as some other states have used theirs for subversive reasons, we can do great things. I have no intention of, and there is no need to trust Wyoming’s fate to the dysfunctional courts. Can you say Trump travel ban?

When discussing the Constitution, occasionally I am asked which amendment is the most important. Tough question, however, in my opinion the Second Amendment is the most important. It allows citizens to protect all the other amendments and enforce the Constitution.

Why am I the best candidate?

I have a broad and deep experience in our free enterprise system and my success as an entrepreneur and in traditional business ventures positions me uniquely to provide Wyoming the vision to lead her to a prosperous and free future.

Gubernatorial Candidate Addresses Carbon County Residents - Haynes: Penitentiary Should Be Moved, Not Fixed

By Mathew McKay

Carbon County residents received some early insight from a Republican candidate for governor during a public forum Thursday evening. Candidate Taylor Haynes took questions from the audience during the pubic forum and addressed topics dealing with the Wyoming State Penitentiary, education and the wilderness study areas at the Carbon County Fairgrounds Multiplex.

Opinion: Keeping Schools Safe

A recurring question I’m faced with as I travel the state, and one that has extra significance right now, is “what should we do to keep our schools safe?” The Park County School Board has been grappling with this question, and has put forth a proposal that would allow the teachers to carry concealed weapons on school grounds after receiving training.

The policy says, “An employee who receives approval by the Board to carry a firearm pursuant to this policy shall only fire his or her firearm if he or she reasonably perceives that his or her life, or the life or lives of others, are in imminent risk of death or serious bodily injury.” I support the excellent efforts of Park County to keep their students safe!

Currently, there are eighteen states that allow adults to carry guns on school property with school permission.

Teachers who are willing and able to complete the training should be allowed to carry a concealed weapon. Of course the choice to do so belongs to the teacher. Teachers will know if they are comfortable with such a choice, and as I have said before in other areas, I trust our teachers to do the right thing for their students.

Opinion: UW Science Initiative Building

In his proposed budget, governor Mead is supporting the release of $100 million dollars to begin construction on the Science Initiative Building at the University of Wyoming. Senator Eli Bebout has said that he will oppose the funding as it is “not the right time.”

I served on the UW board of trustees for 12 years, and I support Senator Bebout’s position on this issue completely. UW has faced $42 million in cuts to date. The staff and faculty have not had raises in years, and the President reports that they have slightly less than 400 filled positions since the decline. It is past time for the University of Wyoming to focus on people, not buildings.

A new science building will not make UW a tier 1 facility as Mead claims. Investing that money in faculty that deliver world shaping research, and in our students who are the future of this state, and in the staff that provide critical support, is the only responsible way to deliver that money to UW. Let me reiterate, great buildings do not make a great university, great minds do.

Opinion: The Impact of Federal Management on Wyoming Forests

The most common reason given against assuming control of our federally managed lands is the claim that the state cannot afford them. The example used to promote this view is the growing cost of wildfire suppression. This claim ignores the central problem: mismanagement that has resulted in the disastrous state we find our forests in. Anyone who has driven through our state has witnessed the pine beetle epidemic that plagues our forests. By systematically refusing to remove dead or dying timber the Forest Service has left our treasured forests at a tipping point.

Dr. Taylor Haynes, Wyoming’s Gubernatorial Candidate, Is A TRUE Constitutionalist

If ever there was a list of gubernatorial candidates who would strictly adhere to the Constitution, the list would be small. But joining Dr. Ron Paul is Dr. Taylor Haynes, who would like to see Wyoming succeed by giving people liberty.

Not even two weeks ago, Dr. Haynes did an interview with Glenn Woods from KGAB radio in Cheyenne, in which he said:

"The Constitution was weighing heavily and being lost and when I could see how the primary was going…I really wanted to keep that particular message out there. Because over the years starting in the late ’80’s pushing back on people like Bill Clinton…I could see that state sovereignty was an issue. If we were under the Constitution, we wouldn’t have some of the problems we’re facing in this very day."
