Candidate uncertainty as Ten Sleep election looms
February 27, 2020
TEN SLEEP – With Ten Sleep’s current mayor declining to run for re-election this May, no mayoral hopeful has yet filed the necessary papers to become a candidate.
“Not as of today,” said Ten Sleep town clerk/treasurer Lori Hughes on Tuesday.
Two seats on the Ten Sleep Town Council will also be contested in the town’s May 5 municipal election. One person has filed candidacy papers for one of the open seats. Current councilpersons Charles Holmes and Amy Truman are up for re-election, but it is remains unclear whether either of them will run.
“I kind of figured everybody would wait until the last minute,” said Hughes.
The deadline to file for candidacy is coming up in just a few weeks. Prospective candidates to run for Ten Sleep mayor or town councilmember in the May 5 election have until Friday, March 20 to file application materials at the Ten Sleep Town Hall.
