Natrona Commissioners Pick New Legislators

Casper, Wy – There are two new members of the Natrona County legislative delegation. The County Commission picked Casper College administrator Bill Landen to fill the state Senate seat that was opened up when former state Senator John Barrasso was appointed to the U.S. Senate. Landen is 51 years old and a Republican. He is associate vice president for student services and athletics director at Casper
College. In the House, the commission chose Casper real estate agent Mary
Hales. Hales is 76, and has served for many years as the state secretary for the Wyoming Democratic Party. She replaces Liz Gentile, who resigned last month to pursue an employment opportunity.
