Former Wyoming state legislator Tyler Lindholm is leaving U.S. Sen. Cynthia Lummis’ office to launch a Wyoming chapter of a Libertarian conservative political advocacy group later this month.
Lindholm, an outspoken and well-liked member of the Wyoming House during his six-year stint in the Legislature and, most recently, state policy director for Lummis, will open the doors to an Americans for Prosperity branch in Wyoming, the 36th state chapter in the country.
The organization, founded by Libertarians Charles and David Koch, is one of the largest grassroots entities in the country and works to promote free markets, individual liberty and limited government.
“I am thrilled to lead AFP’s Wyoming chapter as we work to cut regulation and expand access to economic opportunity across our state,” Lindholm said. “With my service as a U.S. Navy veteran and experience in the public and private sectors, I have the unique ability to expand AFP’s dynamic role throughout Wyoming as we strive to advance policies that will help people improve their lives.”
Lindholm said the branch will be located in his hometown of Sundance, Wyoming, and will open Jan. 17.
