Taylor Haynes Opinion: UW Science Initiative Building

In his proposed budget, governor Mead is supporting the release of $100 million dollars to begin construction on the Science Initiative Building at the University of Wyoming. Senator Eli Bebout has said that he will oppose the funding as it is “not the right time.”

I served on the UW board of trustees for 12 years, and I support Senator Bebout’s position on this issue completely. UW has faced $42 million in cuts to date. The staff and faculty have not had raises in years, and the President reports that they have slightly less than 400 filled positions since the decline. It is past time for the University of Wyoming to focus on people, not buildings.

A new science building will not make UW a tier 1 facility as Mead claims. Investing that money in faculty that deliver world shaping research, and in our students who are the future of this state, and in the staff that provide critical support, is the only responsible way to deliver that money to UW. Let me reiterate, great buildings do not make a great university, great minds do.

Taylor Haynes Opinion: The Impact of Federal Management on Wyoming Forests

The most common reason given against assuming control of our federally managed lands is the claim that the state cannot afford them. The example used to promote this view is the growing cost of wildfire suppression. This claim ignores the central problem: mismanagement that has resulted in the disastrous state we find our forests in. Anyone who has driven through our state has witnessed the pine beetle epidemic that plagues our forests. By systematically refusing to remove dead or dying timber the Forest Service has left our treasured forests at a tipping point.

Dr. Taylor Haynes, Wyoming’s Gubernatorial Candidate, Is A TRUE Constitutionalist

If ever there was a list of gubernatorial candidates who would strictly adhere to the Constitution, the list would be small. But joining Dr. Ron Paul is Dr. Taylor Haynes, who would like to see Wyoming succeed by giving people liberty.

Not even two weeks ago, Dr. Haynes did an interview with Glenn Woods from KGAB radio in Cheyenne, in which he said:

"The Constitution was weighing heavily and being lost and when I could see how the primary was going…I really wanted to keep that particular message out there. Because over the years starting in the late ’80’s pushing back on people like Bill Clinton…I could see that state sovereignty was an issue. If we were under the Constitution, we wouldn’t have some of the problems we’re facing in this very day."
