Interest is high for state treasurer seat

Oct 16, 2012

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.

Hooper says she expects a more names to emerge by Friday’s deadline.  The Republican Party will choose three names on Monday and submit them to Governor Mead, who will make the final selection.
