Governor Matt Mead hopes to move forward in finding a new Oil and Gas Supervisor. The governor accepted the resignation of former Supervisor Tom Doll after Doll said unflattering things about those affected by water contamination in Pavillion.
Mead Spokesman Renny MacKay says the governor will soon visit with the Oil and Gas Commission to determine how to go about a search.
“He does want to work quickly on this but he says it’s most important to be thorough. And so he’s not going to rush the process, but he does want it to move along quickly.”
MacKay says the selection must be someone who’s a petroleum engineer or a petroleum geologist and the governor would like that person to either be from Wyoming or have Wyoming ties.
The nomination must be supported by the Oil and Gas Commission.
