Joel Defebaugh, Albany County Deputy Prosecuting Attorney, has announced his candidacy for Wyoming House District 14.

He stated, "As a resident of Albany County for nearly a decade, I am ready to represent my fellow residents and work to build a better Wyoming."

Defebaugh moved to Laramie from Casper, Wyoming, in 2009 to obtain a Bachelor of Science degree in political science at the University of Wyoming. After graduation, Defebaugh accepted an internship with U.S. Senator John Barrasso in Washington, D.C., which furthered his intrinsic desire to serve as a leader in U.S. democracy.
