JACKSON HOLE, WYO – Citing “voters deserve a choice,” Alex Muromcew announced a write-in campaign for Wyoming House of Representatives District 23.
The seat is currently occupied by Andy Schwartz-D who was running unopposed in the Primary and, to-date, no Republican challenger has stepped forward until Muromcew’s announcement. He will need at least 25 votes in the Primary Election to appear on the General Election ballot this November. Take note: His last name will need to be spelled correctly to count.
Muromcew is a Jackson-based investor, philanthropist, community supporter, and father of four.
“Voters deserve a choice, and I am proud to be a Republican from Teton County,” Muromcew said. “I strongly believe in being fiscally conservative, am committed to the conservation of our lands, and believe in compassion and respect for all. We need fresh perspectives, innovative ideas, and private sector solutions to advance economic diversification in the State of Wyoming and meaningful job development here in Teton County.”
Chair of the Teton County Republican Party, Paul Vogelheim, stated, “It’s wonderful that Alex is willing to serve and give voters a choice in House District 23. He offers voters unique balance of strong financial management skills along with a commitment for conservation stewardship in representing Teton County in the Wyoming legislature.”
Muromcew brings more than 30 years experience in global finance, managing assets across all asset classes, sectors, and markets. He most recently managed over $2b in retirement funds for TIAA, a non-profit asset management company that serves teachers, nurses, firefighters, and non-profit professionals.
Muromcew also supports local entrepreneurship and business growth through his work as an investor and CEO-coach, and as a board member of Silicon Couloir. He has mentored or invested in promising local start-ups including Yellowberry, Dust Cutter Lemonade, and DMOS.
Conservation is a core value for Muromcew. He is a board member of the Jackson Hole Land Trust and on an advisory group for the Teton Regional Land Trust. He is an avid outdoorsman, hunter, skier, and serves as Volunteer Ski Patrol at Snow King Mountain.
Muromcew lives in Jackson with his wife, Joohee, and their four children. He has an MBA from Stanford University and a BA from Dartmouth College.
