InfoMatthew H. Mead was elected Governor in November 2010. He was sworn in as Wyoming's 32nd governor on January 3, 2011. Born in Jackson, Wyoming, on March 11, 1962, Governor Mead was raised on the family ranch in Teton County. He received a bachelor's degree from Trinity University, San Antonio, Texas in 1984 and a law degree from the University of Wyoming, College of Law in 1987. After law school, Mead served as a county prosecutor for Campbell County in Gillette, a federal prosecutor at the U.S. Attorney's Office in Cheyenne, a Special Assistant Attorney General for the State of Wyoming, and a Special Assistant United States Attorney. He also practiced law as a partner in a private firm in Cheyenne for about six years.

From October 2001 to June 2007, Governor Mead served as United States Attorney for Wyoming. He was recommended for that position by Senator Craig Thomas, chosen by President George W. Bush, and confirmed by the U.S. Senate. Among his accomplishments as U.S. Attorney, Mead served on the U.S. Attorney General's Anti-Terrorism Task Force, chaired the Rocky Mountain HIDTA (a multi-state unit focused on illicit drug trafficking), and implemented a program to protect children from exploitation, called Project Safe Childhood, in Wyoming.
