Marian Orr was sworn in as Cheyenne’s first female Mayor on January 3, 2017.  Raised in Casper, Wyoming, Marian graduated from the University of Wyoming and has been a Cheyenne resident since 1993.

Wyoming-raised with deep Cheyenne roots, Marian Orr has dedicated her time and service to making the community a better place to live, work, and play. Even before she had children of her own, she volunteered her time to coach Cheyenne youth soccer. As a young parent, she worked with her neighbors and city officials to turn an undeveloped and unsightly piece of land into what is now a park and playground that continues to be enjoyed by families from across Cheyenne.

Later, Marian served on the program evaluation team for United Way, where she learned of — not only — the great needs within the community, but the network of services provided to Cheyenne’s most vulnerable populations. Marian is a former Board of Trustee for Cheyenne Regional Medical Center.
