InfoDave Freudenthal took office as Wyoming's thirty-first Governor on January 6, 2003. Dave was born in Thermopolis in 1950, the seventh of eight children. He grew up on the family farm, north of town. To help pay for college, he earned money by working construction during the summer. His jobs included building tanks as a member of the National Brotherhood of Boilermakers and Blacksmiths Union and working rigs.

After graduating from Amherst College in 1973, he returned to Wyoming to take a position as an economist for the Wyoming Department of Economic Planning and Development. Governor Ed Herschler appointed him State Planning Coordinator in 1975. While working for the state, Freudenthal simultaneously earned a law degree from the University of Wyoming. After graduating from law school, he opened his own law office in Cheyenne in 1980; this office grew into a general practice firm that represented individuals and businesses. In 1994, he was appointed United States Attorney for Wyoming, a position that he held until May 2001.

Over the years, Dave has actively participated in a wide variety of civic activities. Among other things, he has been Chairman of the Greater Cheyenne Chamber of Commerce; a founding director of the Wyoming Student Loan Corporation; a member of the Education Policy Implementation Council; Board Member, Wyoming Community Foundation; a member of the state Economic Development & Stabilization Board; a member of the Laramie County Community Action Board; and a Layreader and Vestryperson in his church.

Dave and his wife Nancy have four children: Don, Hillary, Bret, and Katie. He enjoys spending time with his family, hunting, fishing, and restoring sheepwagons, airstream trailers, and antique furniture.
