Cheyenne-based Green House Data provides data center services to businessesGaleotos previously was an executive for the real estate and travel services firm Cendant Corpand CEO of the online travel company Cheap Tickets, Inc. "I've been schooled in the principles of good management and leading peopleI've led both national and global companiesI've headed up a publicly traded companyI've bought, sold and merged multimillion-dollar corporations," Galeotos told the crowd. "As a chief executive officer, I have learned the most important thing to have to be a leader is the ability, and to be willing, to make tough decisions," he said. Wyoming needs to build on its economic strengths and shore up its weaknesses to address a close to $1 billion state deficit amid weak revenue from the coal, oil and natural gas industries, Galeotos said. That means reducing government barriers to fossil fuel extraction, promoting innovation in agriculture and boosting internet speeds, he saidWithout getting specific, Galeotos also said that education and reducing health insurance costs would be priorities — drawing a reply from the Wyoming Democratic Party on Facebook. "How to improve health care and education? That's an easy one, Sam — elect more Wyoming Democrats!" the Democratic Party posted. Former state RepMary Throne is seeking the Democratic nomination as Republican Matt Mead is prevented by law from seeking a third term as governor. Other Republicans running for governor include state Treasurer Mark Gordon, physician Taylor Haynes, attorney Harriet Hageman and businessman Bill Dahlin.
