Governor Matt Mead has announced that he's chosen Mark Gordon to fill the State Treasurer vacancy. Gordon was one of three candidates the Wyoming Republican Party Central Committee sent to Governor Mead to replace Joe Meyer who passed away on October 6th.
Mead interviewed the three candidates on Wednesday. Mead said in a media release that he selected Gordon because he has the financial background to do the job of State Treasurer and is committed to seeing Wyoming become as strong as possible.
Gordon is a rancher from Buffalo who served on the Federal Reserve Bank of Kansas City’s Board of Directors from 2009 until he resigned to be a candidate for State Treasurer. The Central Committee also sent Governor Mead the names of Bruce Brown, a Certified Public Accountant from Devils Tower and Clark Stith an attorney from Rock Springs.
