Chad will be the first (and only) LGBTQ representative in Sweetwater County history!
A fifth generation Rock Springs resident, Chad Banks currently serves as the Rock Springs Main Street/Urban Renewal Agency Manager. In that role, he works closely with small businesses, and is a strong believer in their ability to transform Wyoming’s economy. “The majority of new jobs come from existing small businesses that make up 95.6% of all Wyoming companies,” he said. “Government at all levels needs to be proactive in nurturing them and assisting their growth in any way possible,” he added. Banks is dedicated to his community and Wyoming. “I believe in leaving things better than I found them and apply that to every aspect of my life, be it a hiking trail or our community,” Banks shared. Supporters of the Rock Springs Urban Renewal Agency/Main Street Program, which Banks heads, will agree that he is a true community champion. “I am an unapologetic advocate for Rock Springs and want to take that passion to the state legislature.” Banks revealed. He previously served on the Rock Springs City Council from 2003-2008 and again from 2011-2013.
