Clay Kainer would like to announce his candidacy for Sublette County and Prosecuting Attorney.
Kainer was born and raised in Colorado. Immediately after graduating high school, Kainer joined the Navy and served four years aboard the USS Paul F. Foster. Kainer studied German at the University of Wyoming, where he met his wife of 17 years. Kainer attended the University of Wyoming College of Law where he graduated in 2009. Upon graduation, Kainer and his family moved to Boulder, Wyo., to help on the family ranch and begin his practice of law.
Kainer served as the chief deputy county attorney and the Sublette County Attorney up until 2018.
In May of 2022, Kainer had no intention of running as a Republican nominee for the office of the Sublette County and Prosecuting Attorney. Although he knew there was widespread dissatisfaction with the current administration, he did not appreciate how bad things had truly become. A wide and diverse group of citizens who approached Kainer made it clear that the candidates who were on the ballot for the Republican nomination would simply maintain the status quo. Kainer realized that a continuation of this in the Sublette County and Prosecuting Attorney’s Office could not stand. This is why Kainer decided to enter the race by obtaining enough signatures to place him on the ballot as an Independent candidate.
The residents of Sublette County deserve a legal system that does its best to keep them safe. They deserve to have a county and prosecuting attorney who respects the law, works with and supports law enforcement and will treat all of those involved in the criminal justice system with dignity and respect. One who will enforce the laws of the State of Wyoming evenly and fairly, and will strive to protect the rights of all those involved.
If elected, Kainer will restore the shattered relationships between the Sublette County and Prosecuting Attorney’s Office and elected officials. Kainer will restore justice and fairness and restore faith in the fair and ethical prosecution of crimes in Sublette County.
Kainer would be honored to have your vote for the office of Sublette County and Prosecuting Attorney on Nov. 8, 2022.
