Conservative Donna Rice has lived and celebrated the Wyoming way her entire life. As a fourth generation Wyoming wife, mother, grandmother, and small business owner, two priorities guide everything she does: faith and family.
Born in Newcastle and raised in Casper, Donna has a long heritage in Wyoming. Three sets of Donna’s great-grandparents braved the rough Western country in the early 1900s to pursue a better life and opportunity. Part of her family settled into northern Wyoming in Weston County, while others settled near Torrington. Ever since, generations of Donna’s family have embraced the Cowboy way, in all different industries, including railroad, oil, power, real estate, healthcare and conservation. Donna was born in Newcastle to Don and Meredith Sackett. Her father’s job in the oilfield took them across the state and they settled in Casper. She graduated from Kelly Walsh, Casper College, and the University of Wyoming. She attended law school at the University of Denver.
Donna and her husband, Cliff, are also business partners. Owning and growing a business to provide for their family and employees has been hard work; that hard work had them in another state for a time, but Wyoming has always been home in Donna’s heart. They are thrilled to be at home in Casper, and are working to bring business and jobs to the community. She has taught her family the same solid Wyoming values she grew up with: trust God, work hard, listen to each other, and help those around you.
Generations before us have worked hard to make opportunities for Wyomingites, and it’s time for a new leader who will fight hard to make sure the generations ahead of us have those same great opportunities. It’s time to keep Wyoming and America Great!
Donna and her husband live in Casper. They have six children, and over a dozen grandchildren.
