Mickelson released the following statement this afternoon:
“My name is Max Mickelson, and I am eager to tackle the issues facing Rock Springs by announcing my candidacy for Mayor. As a committed member of Rock Springs, I have invested energy in our community by serving as clerk for the Sweetwater #1 School District Board of Trustees, as vice-chair of the Wyoming State Board of Education, as chair of the Sweetwater BOCES Board, secretary of the Rock Springs Amateur Hockey Association Board, and as a board member of the Holy Spirit Catholic School Board as well as having served on the Rock Springs Soccer Association Board and United Way of Southwest Wyoming Board.

Building on that foundation is paramount for the continued success of our city. Lastly, as a husband of a brilliant, talented wife, father of two delightful young ladies, and a son, like you I want us all to live in a safe and supportive community.”
