STATEMENT ON THE UPCOMING PROCESS TO FILL THE VACANCY

ON THE SWEETWATER COUNTY BOARD OF COUNTY COMMISSIONERS


Rock Springs, WY – May 9, 2019 – Speaking about the upcoming process to fill the vacancy on the Sweetwater County Commission created by the recent death of Commissioner Don Van Matre, Sweetwater County Republican Party Chairman Teresa Richards had this to say:


Don Van Matre, 1942-2019

“Don Van Matre’s passing is a great loss to the people of Sweetwater County. He served our county and our country distinctively and wholeheartedly. Don was a kind and generous man who will be sorely missed by all who knew him. While Don can never be replaced, it now falls to the Sweetwater County Republican Party and the remaining Sweetwater County Commissioners to select someone to finish the term of his elected office.

“The Sweetwater County Commissioners have not yet declared a vacancy as described in Wyoming Statute 18-3-524, but in anticipation of that pending declaration, the Sweetwater County Republican Party is working diligently to get ready to do their part in the process to choose Don’s successor. Once the vacancy is declared, and I am officially notified, the party will announce the process that will be used to select the three qualified nominees whose names will be forwarded to the Sweetwater County Board of County Commissioners for consideration. Instructions detailing the application process for interested candidates will also be provided at that time.”

Chairman Richards also said, “The central committee understands the weight of their responsibility in this process, and we will do our very best to make sure that the nominees we select represent the best candidates that the Republican Party has to offer, and I am committed to making this process as transparent and inclusive as possible.”
