Governor Names New State Treasurer

CHEYENNE, Wyo. –  Governor Matt Mead has 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.

“I commend the Central Committee for the hard work it put into this process. I know Monday was a long day for every member of the committee,” Governor Mead said. “I also want to thank all ten candidates who applied to replace Treasurer Meyer. Government requires good people to step up. It is not easy for an individual or their family and I thank those that came forward, each one contributed to making this a better process for Wyoming.”

Governor Mead interviewed the three candidates on Wednesday. “I have received an enormous amount of input from people across the state this week. I have weighed that input in my evaluations. I selected Mark Gordon, who 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.

“I want to thank Bruce and Clark. They are committed to Wyoming and both presented a solid vision for the state’s future,” Governor Mead said.

“I am honored to follow in the footsteps of Joe Meyer. He was a great leader, a mentor and a friend. I am humbled by the responsibility, but enthusiastic about the future of Wyoming,” Gordon said. “I am excited to work with Governor Mead, the other elected officials and the Legislature. I want to thank the Central Committee and the Governor for a very thorough and considered process.”
