Cheyenne Fire Fighter Joe Fender has announced his plan to seek the Democratic nomination for the House District 7 seat in the Wyoming Legislature.

Fender, a fifteen-year veteran of the fire service, is a lieutenant with the Cheyenne Fire & Rescue Department. Fender says he has dedicated nearly his entire adult life as a public servant and sees serving in the Legislature as a way for him to continue to give back to the community that has been so good to me and my family.

Fender says his strengths are his understanding of the legislative process as well as local issues directly affecting the citizens of House District 7. He says a consistent plan must be put in place to make sure local communities have quality basic services such as safe, well-maintained roads, clean water, good schools and public safety.

Fender also has five years of lobbying experience representing firefighters and public safety.
