+ – +
Tamara Trujillo has served in House District 44 as a WY Representative for Laramie County from Jan 2023 to the present. She has received a positive score for Representation and Integrity, and a negative score for Constitutional Competence. Therefore Trujillo has been ranked as Limited Trust.
NOTE: Trujillo missed receiving a positive score for Competence by only 5 points – if she focused on a stronger constitutional education we believe she could rank as a High Trust legislator next year.
She is up for reelection in 2024.
“I believe the office I’m seeking can do better. I feel there are cliques that believe they are doing things for the better of someone however not everything has been transparent or should I say follow procedures as they should. I feel the only way to help remedy this issue is to constantly ask the right questions to ensure we are following procedures and laws. Accountability for one’s actions is a big deal for me so recorded votes are important.”
Overall Trujillo earns a (+) for Representation.
It appears that Trujillo missed 8 votes across 2 days in 2023 General Session:
- 3/2/23 – Concurrence vote for HB76; HB195; SF76; SF120;
- 3/3/23 – Concurrence vote for HB64; HB93; SF48; SF96.
