Guy V. Padgett III (born 1977) is an American municipal politician from Wyoming. A member of the Casper, Wyoming City Council, he was mayor of Casper from 2005 to 2006. He is a Democrat.

He came out as gay while on the city council in 2003, becoming the state's first openly gay elected official. Despite Wyoming's reputation for being politically conservative and the murder of Matthew Shepard nearby in 1998, Padgett found little difficulty, being unanimously elected mayor by the council in 2005. He reportedly enjoyed great popularity among his constituents, including support from prominent Republican Party politicians such as Alan K. Simpson. In addition he was, at 27, Casper's youngest mayor.

He was re-elected to the city council in 2006; his current term ends in 2010.
