In response to the groundswell of encouragement from around the state, I have announced my candidacy for the office of Governor of Wyoming.

The recent disregard for the Wyoming voters shown by our Legislature and Governor cannot be ignored. The unwanted, unneeded interference of the Federal Government in education, in the management and production of our natural resources, and in the general affairs of Wyoming must be diminished.

Washington must not be allowed to “dictate” to Wyoming how we manage our transportation systems or how we provide health care.

I'm running because I care about our kids and I care about our grandkids. I'm running because there is so much we can do to create a "freedom zone" in our great state – and we're not doing it!

The Office of Governor is not an entitlement; rather, the Office must be earned. And I plan to earn your vote. Over the coming months, I intend to offer a sensible contrast to the choices we currently have. I plan to offer a detailed vision of where and how I will lead this state.

Dr. Haynes Plans for Yellowstone

As Governor of Wyoming, I have no plans for traditional drilling for oil and gas development, or any other activity within the Park beyond its present uses. My comments about Yellowstone have been twisted and made to imply otherwise.

I have worked to draw attention to the Park due to the current plans of the National Park Service to upgrade the electrical and information technology services there, which includes the installation of equipment buildings, back-up power generators, propane fuel tanks, metal lattice towers, and more.

The fact that less intrusive geothermal driven units were not considered for this upgrade, is in my view a gross oversight because of the need to preserve and jealously guard the pristine nature of the park. This could be accomplished by the use of multiple small geothermal power units. There are ZERO emissions from these units. The hot water required to drive these systems is already available at the surface in the park, thus minimal disturbance to install the necessary tubing. They can both heat and power all facilities in the park.

We should strive to preserve the park and operate it in a much more dependable and natural state than the present practice.
Since the 1930s, geothermal energy has grown to heat 90% of the homes in Iceland and produce 30% of the countries electric energy. This inventive and eco-friendly energy system has been overlooked by the NPS in its plans for Yellowstone, and we should ask why.

My intent in attracting attention to activities in Yellowstone is to raise public awareness and have people participate in more significant numbers than the eleven (11) who commented during the thirty-day public comment period that was allowed prior to approving this monumental project. 

As your Governor, I will insist on the best technology for operating and maintaining this unrivaled treasure.
