Curt Meier is a Wyoming farmer and businessman who has been member of the Wyoming State Senate since 1995. He grew up on a farm and started developing his work ethic by helping his grandfather fill corn and bean planters when he was 12 years old. From that time on, he has lived within a 1/4 mile of the place where he and his brother grew up in LaGrange, Wyoming.

After winning state championships in basketball and track while attending LaGrange High School, Curt received a Bachelor’s Degree in Animal Science at the University of Wyoming, where he attended school on an academic scholarship. From the age of 12 until he was 29, Curt worked at the side of his father— a pioneer in center-pivot irrigation. When his father passed away from a heart attack in 1982, Curt took over the irrigated farm, which covered more than 3,000 acres.

Curt’s wife, Charlene, taught school in Goshen County for 44 years, while he continued to successfully manage his growing business ventures.

Over the course of Meier’s Senate career, he served eight years on the Joint Appropriations Committee and has also been the legislature’s State Retirement Board Liaison since 2009. He most recently served as Chairman of the Senate’s Transportation, Highways and Military Affairs Committee, formerly served as chair of the Senate Corporations, Elections & Political Subdivisions Committee and has worked for years to preserve and expand one of Wyoming’s most treasured resources on the Select Water Committee.

Curt is proud of his service in the Wyoming State Senate, and has been recognized by numerous organizations for the work he has done for the citizens of Wyoming. He was presented with the Patrick Henry Award for service to veterans and the National Guard in the past year, and is also proud to have helped

Chairman Bill Barton on the Transportation Committee early in his Senate career to establish a trust fund for senior citizen transportation needs.

Curt is ready to commit himself to serving the people of Wyoming full-time, and he is excited to bring his experience and leadership to the office of State Treasurer.
