Five file for vacant town council seat

The Greybull Town Council will have a pool of five candidates to consider when it convenes Friday night at 6 p.m. to fill the council seat that was created when Bob Graham moved into mayor’s office.
The five candidates who filed letters of interest at Town Hall prior to the end of the business day on Friday were Dave Havener, Les Lowe, Lindsay Casey, Ross Jorgensen and Rod Collingwood.
Havener is pastor of the Greybull Alliance Church.
Lowe, who works for Tim Kershner Construction, ran for election last year, finishing third behind the eventual winners, Clay Collingwood and Myles Foley.
Casey is a contract dance instructor for the Greybull Recreation District.
Jorgensen is a former town employee currently employed as a circuit rider for the Wyoming Association of Rural Water Systems.
Collingwood, who is employed by TCT, filed for a seat on the council last year but withdrew from the race prior to the general election.
The filling of the council vacancy is one of two items on Friday’s agenda. The council will also be asked to approved the makeup of the new economic development committee that it agreed to form earlier this month.
