8 Applicants To Fill Vacant Wyo House Seat In Gillette

Eight people have submitted applications for the seat in the Wyoming House of Representatives left vacant with the Nov 2nd death from COVID-19 of Republican Roy Edwards of Gillette. 

       The day after he died, Edwards won a new term in the legislature’s 53rd District, so his appointed successor will not only finish out the rest of the current term but also the new 2-year term.

      The only requirements for applicants are that they’re at least 21, live in District 53, and are Republicans. 

      The local GOP precinct committee is meeting today to select 3 finalists whose names will be sent to the Campbell County Commissioners, who will make the final choice.
