Lisa Maes - Ward 2 - 307-871-7552
I was born and raised in Ely, Nevada, in a family with four children. I graduated from White Pine High School in 1974, and moved to Wyoming in 1978 with my young family. We made Green River our home.
I have two children: Carlos Maes, who resides in Fort Collins, CO and Holly Wilson, who lives in Topeka, Kansas. Raising two children in Green River was a great experience. I have five grandchildren and three step-grandchildren with whom I spend time whenever possible. I play golf and racquetball, enjoy photography, and love to travel, shop, and garden. I am a NASCAR and Oakland Raiders fan.
My work experience over the years has included teaching swimming at School District #2 to all 4th - 6th grade students from 1978 to 1981. I worked for the City of Rock Springs as their Pool Manager at the Civic Center from 1981 to 1985. I worked for the City of Green River in the Parks and Recreation Department for 23 years and took early retirement February 2008.
Working for the City of Green River afforded many opportunities to build lifetime friendships with a wide variety of people. This allowed me to form great partnerships and valuable networks that inevitably provided excellent support for many of my programs and activities. I saw firsthand how City services affect everyone’s lives. I am proud and honored that I took part in shaping Green River’s history by creating and managing many of the City’s events and programs that have enhanced the quality of life for all residents. Currently I am employed full time at Flaming Gorge Harley-Davidson as their motor clothes Manager.
I have been a member of the Wyoming Recreation and Parks Association for the past 19 years. I served as their newsletter editor for five years, on the Board of Directors as a Member at Large for six years and finally as their President for four years. I served as a representative on the Council of Presidents and the Midwest Regional Council. These councils are branches of the NRPA (National Recreation and Parks Association), and are involved in shaping many regional and national decisions.
I have always believed that Green River is a wonderful place to live and raise a family. We have a beautiful city that has an abundance of natural and programmed opportunities for its citizens.
I look forward to serving the citizens of Green River. I promise to do my best in representing the people of Ward II and help shape a better future for all residents of Green River.
