The Wyoming Republican Party is seeking applicants for the position of State Treasurer.
Republican Treasurer Joe Meyer passed away last week, and Governor Matt Mead formally notified the GOP of the position vacancy on Wednesday. Under state law, the party has 15 days to select three finalists for the job, and the governor will pick the new treasurer.
Wyoming Republican Party Chair Tammy Hooper says the next state treasurer will have some big shoes to fill.
“Joe Meyer did such a great job of keeping the coffers full, you know, making sure that we had chosen wise investment(s)… so that we do have that nice cushion as taxpayers in Wyoming,” says Hooper.
Hooper proposes that the G-O-P host a party meeting in Riverton to consider nominations on October 22nd.
