Rep. Mark Kinner, a retired banker and longtime Sheridan resident, began his political career in 2015 following the death of beloved Wyoming legislator John Patton. Rep. Kinner attended his first legislative session in 2016, working through one of the toughest budget sessions in years for Wyoming. He cares deeply about the people of Sheridan County and Wyoming, and is excited to continue to work hard to solve the issues facing the Cowboy State.

SHERIDAN — Mark Kinner, who is Sheridan County's newest state representative, said the first bill that he sponsored in his first legislative term is now awaiting the signature of Gov. Matt Mead.
The legislator said House Bill 87 clarifies how two school districts can work together and simplifies the process for deciding tuition between two different school districts.
He said after the bill passed the House and Senate, it was reviewed by Wyoming's attorney general and is now on the governor's desk. He said he also co-signed a couple of bills that have passed, including House Bill 70, that will potentially resolve some trail issues in the Big Horn Mountains, and House Bill 80, dealing with funding for Wyoming's community colleges. He said he was very happy to be a co-sponsor of that bill.

SHERIDAN — Each year, television talking heads and the general public discuss how much sooner election season seems to come.
This year, too, those either seeking elected office for the first time or seeking to hold onto their current seats are getting a jump on filing season to announce their candidacies. Rep. Mark Kinner, R-Sheridan, is one such candidate. He announced his bid for re-election Friday. “This means so much to me, I just had to flat get it out there,” Kinner said in an interview with The Sheridan Press on Friday. “It might just be new guy enthusiasm, but it meant that much to me.”
