Natalia D. Macker had a big year in 2019. First, the Teton County Commissioner took the lead when she was appointed by fellow commissioners to be chairwoman of the Board of County Commissioners. Months later, Governor Mark Gordon appointed her to the Wyoming Council for Women’s Issues. She is the first elected official to take on that role.

Then came another first.

In October, Macker was the first woman awarded Commissioner of the Year by the Wyoming County Commissioners Association. She happens to be chair of that association’s Health, Safety and Social Services Committee.

Although we’re only days into 2020, it’s already shaping up to be another eventful year for Macker. She just announced she will run for re-election. (Her seat, along with Commissioner Greg Epstein’s, is up for re-election this year.)

The recognition Macker is amassing acknowledges the many ways in which she is involved in the community. She says that involvement helps explain why she’s running for re-election.
