About Representative-Elect Marshall Burt

My name is Marshall Burt, and I was elected to represent Green River and Rock Springs in the Wyoming House of Representatives. I am driven by a sense of service to my wife and children, to my country, and my community, and I am committed to bringing that dedication to Cheyenne. I was born in Minnesota, where my parents taught me the value of service, work ethic, and respect for others, principles that I carry with me today.

Like so many young men and women in Wyoming, I enlisted to serve in the armed forces and joined the United States Marine Corps when I was 22 years old. I was stationed in Okinawa, Japan. After concluding my service with the Marines, I was offered the opportunity to work in the oilfields here in Wyoming in 2009. During my time here, I got to know the people that make Wyoming great and decided that this is where I want to be! Folks like me who know the value of work and appreciate what it takes to forge your path. I have since joined the team at Union Pacific, where I now work as a track inspector.

While living in Sweetwater County, I helped build the home for the American Legion in Green River, became a charter member of the Sweetwater County Marine Corps League, volunteer locally, and currently serve as a part-time firefighter.

I ran for House District 39 to be a consistent voice for economic diversity by opening markets and making Wyoming the best state to innovate.

I ran to make sure that people keep more of their money so that they can invest in their communities.

I ran to invite innovation to education to improve student success, instead of going all-in on a system designed a half a century ago or more.

I ran to be a voice in Cheyenne for people like me, whose long hours and hard work keep the world moving.
