Several changes in local leadership

 

November 8, 2018



Shortly before 8 p.m. Tuesday night, unofficial election results were released from the Hot Springs County Clerk's office.

The results will put a few new faces in local offices come January, while we will see some familiar ones stay on board.

Wyoming will have a new Governor in January as Republican Mark Gordon won the race in something of a landslide.

A majority of the other state races came out pretty much as predicted. John Barrasso will continue in the US Senate, Liz Cheney was elected US Representative and Edward Buchanan will serve as Secretary of State.

Locally, we will be represented in House District 28 by John R. Winter who will begin as the junior legislator at the first of the year.

Jack Baird will join Tom Ryan and Phil Scheel as the newest Hot Springs County Commissioner.

Jill Logan will be serving as the new Hot Springs County Attorney.

Jerimie Kraushaar won the sheriff's position in spite of 696 write in votes.

Mike Chimenti is our new Mayor for Thermopolis.

Two incumbents retained their seats on the Thermopolis Town Council, John Dorman, Sr. and Tony Larson.

There will be two new faces on the Board of Trustees for Hot Springs County School District No.1, Rick Engelbrecht and Ronda Freel. They will be joined by incumbent Jennifer Axtell.
