Runion reelected Wyoming State Legislative Board Chairman

CLEVELAND, March 31 — Cory L. Runion was reelected by acclamation to serve as Chairman of the Wyoming State Legislative Board at triennial meetings in Cheyenne, Wyo., on February 9.

Brother Runion, a member of BLET Division 115 (Cheyenne), is beginning his first full term as Chairman. He was serving as Vice-Chairman when he elevated to the Chairman’s office on September 28, 2008, following the retirement of former WSLB Chairman Terry R. Jones.

Brother Runion is a Union Pacific locomotive engineer who first joined the Brotherhood on December 1, 2000.

Also reelected during the meeting were: WSLB Secretary-Treasurer Lawrence Kemper, a member of BLET Division 94 (Gillette, Wyo.); and WSLB Vice-Chairman Troy Hladky of BLET Division 31 (Douglas, Wyo.). Brother Kemper was reelected by acclamation.

BLET National President Paul Sorrow congratulated Brother Runion and the other officers upon their election. President Sorrow also thanked all Legislative Representatives throughout Wyoming for their involvement in the affairs of the Brotherhood as well as their active participation in national, state and local politics.

Tim Smith, Chairman of the BLET California State Legislative Board and National Association of State Legislative Board Chairman (NASLBC), attended the meeting and conducted a workshop for the Legislative who were in attendance.

Additional guest speakers included: Ken A. Esquibel of BLET Division 115 (Cheyenne), who serves as a member of the Wyoming House of Representatives; Dan Neal and Sarah Gorin of the Equality State Policy Center; Kim Floydd of the Wyoming AFL-CIO; and Leslie Peterson and Brianna Jones of the Wyoming State Democratic Party.

In addition, Dan Neal, Executive Director of the Equality State Policy Center, awarded Richard Sanchez with the "Grassroots Volunteer Award" for his efforts in arranging get-out-the-vote efforts.

“On behalf of the 2010 Wyoming State Legislative Board, I would like to thank all who participated in making the triennial meeting and banquet was a huge success,” Chairman Runion said.
