In preparing this story of “Teno”, I asked him
what he believed to be the most important of his
contributions to Wyoming as Representative, also
what he considered the main purpose of his office.
Following is his answer:
“It is difficult to try to pick a few highlights
from such a busy period in my life. It is difficult
to judge what will be of more significance—the
legislation I supported that will influence genera-
tions to come, or the first steps in developing our
resources more fully.—
My major aim has been to insure that Wyo-
ming, represented by but one man, has the fullest
attention and best possible service. I strive for per-
sonal, effective service to every citizen, every com-
munity and every segment of the economy on the
premises that much can be done here in Washington
to assist and encourage the growth of our great
Wyoming. For example, my idea to seek unused
Hill-Burton hospital construction funds from other
states succeeded in bringing in an additional $500,-
000 for our hospitals—that is the kind of work that
pleases me most and is most helpful to Wyoming.”
Whether or not one agrees with Teno depends
mainly on what political party he is affiliated with
but everyone agrees that Teno has worked tirelessly
and has done a good job according to his convictions.
He is today a candidate for the United States Sen-
ate, opposing him for the office is Republican Gov-
ernor Clifford P. Hansen.
