ROCK SPRINGS — Eric Bingham has announced his candidacy for the Rock Springs City Council Ward 4 seat.
“I am pleased to announce my candidacy for Rock Springs City Council Ward 4. Strong leadership is the ability to empower others to do remarkable things and if you elect me, I will be honored to serve you by bringing my leadership and pragmatic problem-solving skills to the council,” Bingham said. “I have a powerful desire to see Rock Springs prosper and grow, even in these challenging financial times.”
Bingham is currently employed in a leadership role with Sweetwater County as the Land Use Director, where he has more than 17 years of experience in land use issues, project management leadership, code development, and management of complex development projects. In addition, he coordinates with other county departments and municipalities for impact funding requests for large-scale industrial projects.
Additionally, he supervises the Economic Development operations at the county level, which includes business retention and expansion, and business attraction. Apart from his development experience, he has a law enforcement background as a sworn peace officer. In fact, prior to his family’s move to Wyoming, he was a Park Ranger with Utah State Parks.
“Almost 18 years ago, my wife and I chose to make Rock Springs our home and have been blessed in that choice ever since. It allowed us to raise our amazing son in a God loving and patriotic community,” Bingham said. “We love the beauty of our county and enjoy all the amazing recreation opportunities that we have right at our doorstep. Whether it is mountain biking, hiking, paddle boarding, or some good ole target practice, we enjoy and appreciate the freedoms that we have locally and understand the necessity of protecting these liberties.”
“Our family has met incredible people in Rock Springs, and I look forward to knocking on doors and listening to the concerns of the citizens of Ward 4,” he said. “I genuinely believe a city council member is a voice of the constituents they represent and if you elect me, I will be honored to serve you.”
