Who is Cyrus Western?

Cyrus Western is an American politician and a member of the Republican party of the Wyoming House of Representatives, representing the 51st district.

Western earned a Bachelor’s degree in environmental science from Washington & Jefferson College in 2012 and a Master of Arts in Liberal Studies in environmental science from Harvard University in 2016.

On November 6, 2018, Western was elected to the Wyoming House of Representatives where he represents the 51st district. He ran unopposed in the general election.

On December 14, 2020, on Twitter, Western replied to an article about the appointment of the first African-American sheriff in Wyoming, Aaron Appelhans, with a GIF from the film Blazing Saddles of Cleavon Little’s character saying “Where the white women at?”

The film scene drew on stereotypes of African-American men. After receiving notable criticism for the tweet, Western deleted the tweet and called Sheriff Appelhans to apologize. Western also publicly apologized. While Western claimed that he meant to draw on the anti-racist themes of the film in the tweet, he acknowledged that the tweet was insensitive and “dumb.”

Four months later, in May 2021, the Pikes Peak Southern Christian Leadership Conference called for the resignation of Representative Western over the insensitive tweet, taking into account the apology. Western said that he would not be resigning.

He sponsors House Bill 84, also known as the Naomi Hunting Age Exemption Act. The bill is named after a Make-A-Wish kid who wanted to go big game hunting but was ultimately prevented from doing so by Wyoming’s big game hunting age requirements. State law requires big game hunters to be at least 12 years old.

Western’s bill seeks to waive Wyoming Game and Fish Commission age requirements for children with terminal illnesses. The bill has been introduced to the House Travel, Recreation, Wildlife and Cultural Resources Committee.
