Governor Matt Mead says he is looking for someone with experience and knowledge about the state as he decides who should be the next State Treasurer.
The Governor will interview accountant Bruce Brown, Fulbright scholar Clark Stith, and Mark Gordon, a former board member of the Federal Reserve bank of Kansas City. Mead says they certainly need to understand investing, but they also need to be able to contribute on the various state boards and commissions. The Governor said that he also wants someone he can work with.
A former State Representative, an attorney, a two-time candidate for State Auditor and a State Committeewoman have all expressed interest in filling the remaining term of State Treasurer Joe Meyer, who died earlier this month.
Ed Prosser, Bruce Brown, Clark Stith and Janet Anderson have all told Wyoming Republican officials that they’re interested in the job. GOP Chairman Tammy Hooper says it’s a good list.
“I think everyone that’s applied have a professional degree, have the education, have worked in campaigns or have run statewide races themselves,” Hooper said.
