Mark Moody has announced that he is running to be a Cheyenne City Council member from Ward III.

Moody joins two incumbents from the ward who have filed to run for re-election to their seats, Michelle Aldrich and Richard Johnson.

From Moody's campaign announcement: "I am thrilled to announce my candidacy for the Cheyenne City Council Ward 3," says Moody. “I believe that by working together, we can address local and national issues that impact our community to build a brighter future for Cheyenne while maintaining our Wyoming values. As your council member, I will be committed to transparency and accountability, listening to your concerns, advocating for your needs, and working tirelessly to protect our state and community’s traditions, passing them on to our children."

Moody Cites Four Pillars Of His Campaign

The announcement says his campaign is based on four pillars

1. Pro-Neighborhood

2. Pro-Business

3. Pro-Law & Order

4. Pro-Transparency & Accountability

His announcement cites a background in public service, including the Cheyenne Land Adjustment Board. He has also served on the executive board for the Knights Of Columbus.

His campaign website says Moody has a Masters Degree in Geography. It also says ''Overall, the present city council has lost sight of the duties and ideals to serve We The People, who call Cheyenne home, it is time for New Leadership for Cheyenne for Ward 3.''

Wyoming's primary election is slated for August 20. Under Wyoming law, mayoral and city council elections are non-partisan. That means candidates do not affiliate with a political party and don't receive partisan nominations. Instead, the top two candidates for each open seat advance to the general election, assuming at least two people have filed to run. So with two Wrd III seats open, four candidates could advance in Ward III to the November General Election from the primary election.

Candidates have until May 31 to file to run in the primary.
