The Wyoming Freedom Caucus is a group of representatives, who currently serve in Wyoming’s legislature. We are dedicated to upholding open, accountable, and limited governments, as well as the Wyoming and United States Constitutions, the rule of law, and legislation that promotes the liberty, safety, and prosperity of all Wyoming and American citizens. The caucus is committed to defending the inalienable rights of all Americans.
Freedom Caucus Members
Our members champion Republican values such as smaller government, strong family values, and the protection of individual freedoms and liberties as outlined in the U.S. and Wyoming constitutions. Despite being a minority in the legislature, the caucus has achieved significant milestones on behalf of the people. Notably, they successfully advocated for the passage of the crossover voting bill to ensure fair and secure primary elections, and they played a crucial role in enacting a ban on boys competing in girls sports. Additionally, the caucus has passed two robust bans on abortion, which are currently being contested by opponents in Wyoming courts. Furthermore, they have supported and helped pass a Second Amendment Protection Act, safeguarding citizens’ right to bear arms by preventing federal interference.
The Wyoming Freedom Caucus traces its origins back to a small group of conservative Wyoming House Representatives who began gathering to demonstrate their solidarity in slowing down the leftward shift of the establishment and the state as a whole. By 2017, this group had grown to approximately five legislators. As grassroots movements in the state grew increasingly concerned about the disregard of their wishes by political insiders, the Wyoming Freedom Caucus gained momentum. By 2020, they constituted nearly one-third of the House of Representatives. In 2022, Wyoming voters sent a resounding message with a “red wave” of conservative legislators, including a solid 26 conservative votes led by the Wyoming Freedom Caucus, challenging the Uniparty’s efforts to maintain their power. The open hostility displayed by the Uniparty in obstructing the will of the people has highlighted the stark contrast between the Wyoming Freedom Caucus and the established party. This has presented voters with a clear choice, and the Wyoming Freedom PAC is committed to supporting more conservative candidates, thereby fostering the growth of the caucus and transferring governing power away from the political insiders.
Our mission is to raise funds to support members of the Wyoming Freedom Caucus and their allies during their election campaigns. Wyoming is on the verge of signaling that the era of business as usual for the Uniparty is coming to an end. The Wyoming Freedom PAC will ensure that donations are utilized to back candidates who will listen to the people of Wyoming and champion legislation that aligns with conservative values.
Who We Support
Rep. John Bear
Wyoming Freedom Caucus Chairman
A former Naval officer, John has worked in leadership roles his entire professional life. John was elected to the Wyoming Legislature in 2020 and has served on the Minerals, Business & Economic Development Committee and the House Revenue Committee.

Rep. Jeremy Haroldson
Wyoming Freedom Caucus Vice Chair
As a Wyoming native, he resides in Wheatland, Wyoming, with his wife Lori, and two kids, Elaina and Malachi. Jeremy spent 12 years as a mechanic and welder in a coal fire power plant. After that, this family answered a call to ministry and Jeremy stepped out and took the lead pastor position at Impact Ministries in his hometown of Wheatland. Because of the losses of freedom during COVID, Jeremy ran and was first elected to the Wyoming Legislature in 2020. He is enjoying the opportunity to serve his community and state in that role since. In the last three years he has been able to prime-sponsor a number of bills. Three of them have been signed into law, the highlight being HB103 that addressed crossover voting in Wyoming. Jeremy’s passion is to see the constitutional role of government reestablished and to make sure that freedom is preserved for our nation and for the generations to come.
Rep. Chip Neiman
House Majority Floor Leader
Along with his wife Joni, Chip owns and operates Tower Valley JH Ranch, a cattle and hay-producing operation on the Belle Fourche River in northeast Wyoming, which was established before Wyoming became a state. He is married to the most incredible woman in the world, is the father of two exceptional children who married fantastic spouses and blessed he and his wife with four beautiful grandchildren. He aims to honor Christ in every aspect of his life, do a professional job growing and protecting his business for future generations of agriculturalists, and advance the cause of conservatism by honoring the Constitution and protecting liberty. Chip was elected to the Wyoming House in 2020 and currently serves as the Majority Floor Leader, a very challenging position given the current Wyoming House Speaker and balance of true conservatives vs. RINOs. Chip was the prime sponsor on 2021’s HB0229 “Livestock Identification Choice Act”, which protects the privacy of livestock owners from governmental disclosure, which was signed into law. He was cosponsor and architect of 2022’s HB92, the Wyoming abortion “trigger law”, 2023’s HB0152 “Life is a Human Right Act”, and is acting as intervenor in the lawsuit filed against Wyoming’s abortion ban. He was also the prime sponsor of 2023’s HB0070, which guarantees homeschool freedom by eliminating the requirement that an instructional program be provided by a single-family unit, and was signed into law in 2023.
Rep. Jeanette Ward
Jeanette Ward is a self-described political refugee from Illinois. She came to Wyoming in late August 2021 looking for freedom. She served for 4 years on the largest elected school board in the land of Lincoln, often as the lone conservative, and ran for State Senate in 2020. She has three degrees, a Bachelor’s of Science, a Master’s of Science and a Master’s in Business Administration. She currently serves as the State Representative for Wyoming House District 57, Chuck Gray’s former seat. She was the prime sponsor on HB0066 and HB0143, which would have outlawed discrimination for not wearing a mask, not getting vaccinated, or not getting tested, and nullified the CDC and WHO’s jurisdiction in Wyoming, respectively (both bills failed on 3rd reading in the WY House, along ideological lines, 29-32). She also made the motion to pull SF0117 from the Speaker’s desk, which would have made it illegal to discuss homosexuality and gender identity with children in grades K-3 and required that schools inform parents of any changes in their children’s mental health (pronoun usage). That motion failed by a vote of 27-34, conservatives to liberals.
Rep. Scott Heiner
A fourth-generation Wyomingite and growing up on a small dairy farm in a family of 12, Scott put himself through college and worked for 35 years as an engineer and area manager in the Oil and Gas Industry. Scott was first elected to the Wyoming Legislature in 2020 and served on the Minerals, Business & Economic Development Committee, the Agriculture, State and Public Lands & Water Resources Committee, and the Select Federal Natural Resources Committee. Scott was recently appointed to the White House Council on Environmental Quality Carbon Dioxide Capture, Utilization and Sequestration Non-Federal Lands Permitting Task Force. Scott is retired and lives on a ranch near a national wildlife refuge. He is a father of 7 children and has 8 grandchildren.
Rep. Rachel Rodriguez-Williams

She is a graduate of the Park County Leadership institute and a billet mom for the Yellowstone Quake Hockey Team. Her family enjoys spending time outdoors, camping, and fishing. Rachel serves on the Wyoming House Judiciary, Rules and Procedures, Interstate Compact for Juveniles, and CSG West Committees. Rachel was the prime sponsor and champion of 2023’s HB0152 – “Life is a Human Right” Act, and 2022’s HB0092, the Wyoming abortion “trigger law”. She is a fierce pro-life advocate.
Rep. Scott Smith
Scott Smith got involved in politics after praying at the capital weekly and observing the legislature. He recognized that the majority of the house members didn’t hold the same conservative faith-based belief system that he did. In 2022 Scott decided to be the change he wanted to see and was elected into the Wyoming House Legislature. Scott currently serves on the House Transportation, Highways and Military Affairs Committee. In the 2023 General Session, Scott was the prime sponsor of House Bill 146 Lobbying Restrictions. Scott sees that the Legislature makes laws for the people but not for themselves. HB 146 would have restricted legislators from becoming a lobbyist for two years after they are done serving in office. In the 2022 election there were three legislators that were unseated from office and immediately became paid lobbyists. Who had they been representing while in office? Scott has chosen to be a champion for the Wyoming way of life. He grew up in Detroit MI and was a missionary teacher in Honduras. Scott knows the importance of keeping the government in check to protect our freedoms. Scott has an extensive background in finance. With a proven track record of saving non-profits financially and making small business profitable, Scott is a valuable asset to the legislature
Rep. Allen E. Slagle
Allen has been ranching for over forty years, he is the third generation on the ranch since his granddad homesteaded in 1920. The increasing loss of liberties lead him to run for legislature in 2022. He serves on the Agriculture, State and Public Lands & Water Resources Committee. The first legislation he ran with the help of Senator Steinmetz was a bill to reinstate a moratorium on the use of eminent domain for the power distribution lines from wind farms. The idea being to protect private property rights. It made it through both houses and then the Governor vetoed it, so much for private property rights.
Rep. Daniel Singh
Daniel, a second-generation American and Wyoming native, has devoted his life to service, beginning with a strong missionary background. After early studies in history at his local community college, he graduated from Calvary Chapel Bible College in Murrieta, California, and has served on over 20 evangelical missions both locally and internationally. His civic duties expanded in 2022 when he was elected to represent the newly formed District 61 in the Wyoming House. Daniel made his mark by introducing House Bill 239, which decriminalized unattended vehicle idling. He championed Senate File 131, which prohibited the delivery of unsolicited ballot request forms, which passed both the House and Senate but was vetoed by the Governor. He remains optimistic and is committed to generating productive debate, fighting for Wyoming values, and shaping a promising future for all generations. Daniel manages a coffee shop outside his legislative duties in central Cheyenne, nurturing his passion for community service.

Rep. Bill Allemand
Bill Allemand was born in Wyoming and raised in Natrona County on his family ranch before graduating high school from Midwest in 1977. Bill moved to Kansas and raised 4 wonderful children and became a grandfather; yet, his Wyoming roots kept calling him home. He moved back to his family ranch and has owned and operated a small trucking company that transports water in the Salt Creek oil field at Midwest and Edgerton. Throughout his life, Bill has considered himself to be a Liberty-minded Republican who cares deeply about maintaining the way of life that he was blessed to have. The Wyoming Legislature needs strong Conservative Republicans who won’t back down and won’t cave to pressures from lobbyists, and Bill’s acts as a public servant for the people will never put him in the camp of the Uniparty. Bill is an active member of the Republican Party and wholeheartedly supports the Republican Platforms and ideals. Bill will never be a Republican in Name Only! (RINO).
Wyoming Freedom PAC members have sponsored several Bills that have brought conservative values and constituent needs to the legislature.
