Election '02 Briefs

Greenwood won't file

Jim Greenwood confirmed Monday that he will not seek re-election to the Sublette County Rural Health Care District board. Greenwood said, "I don't know that I could give it 100 percent for the next four years," so rather than serving part of a term and resigning before the term expires, he won't seek re-election. Greenwood said the time commitment is something potential candidates "shouldn't take very lightly."

With Dave Racich and Bob Dew's statements that they won't be seeking re-election either, there will be three seats up for grabs on the board.

Coroner slot is a three-way race

Donny Pope of Big Piney and Frank Morrison of Marbleton have filed applications for nomination to appear on election ballots for county coroner, as has Donald Schooley of Pinedale. Current Coroner Bill Meyer has stated his intent not to seek re-election.

The filing period of application for nomination of election of partisan candidates remains open through May 31. For more information, contact the county clerk's office.

More candidates file

Two Republicans have filed their applications for House District 20: Stan Cooper and Frank Johnson, both of Kemmerer. Monte Olsen of Daniel filed his candidacy for the Republican nomination for House District 22, as has incumbent Representative Bubba Shivler of Jackson.

Statewide elected offices have some competition. While Crosby Allen of Lander has filed for the Republican nomination for U.S. Senator, as has incumbent Mike Enzi.

Two Democrats have filed to vie for the Democratic nomination for U.S. Representative: Ron Akin of Cheyenne and John Swett of Laramie. The democratic nominee will then face off with Republican Barbara Cubin in the general election.

Four Republicans have filed for the governor's seat: Eli Bebout of Riverton, Ray Hunkins of Wheatland, Steve Watt of Rock Springs and John Self of Sheridan. Kenneth Casner of Elk Mountain filed for this seat as well, and is expected to face off with Paul Hickey and Dave Freudenthal for the Democratic nomination.

Three Democrats filed for the Superintendent of Public Instruction nomination: Kathy Emmons of Cheyenne, Christopher Shoults of Torrington and Richard Wiederspahn. Four men will vie for the Republican nomination: Trent Blankenship of Rawlins, John Mingle of Laramie, Jim Twiford of Douglas and Neil Waring.
