Big Horn County Attorney Resigns
Written by Andrew-Rossi on March 30, 2018
The search is underway for a replacement for the Big Horn County Attorney.
Kim Adams announced her resignation last week, which will take effect June 1st. That’s about seven months before her first term in office would have ended, according to an article in the Basin Republican Rustler. Leaders of the Big Horn County Republican party are scheduled to meet in Basin on Tuesday, April 17, to select the three finalists to forward to the commissioners.
Janice Wantulok, chair of the Big Horn County Republican Party, told the newspaper Tuesday that four people have expressed a desire to complete the seven months that remain on Adams’ term. They include former Big Horn County Attorney Michelle Burns; Shell attorney Philip Abromats; Kim Mickelson, who currently works in the county attorney’s office; and Marcia Bean, an attorney in Fremont County.
But Adams isn’t the only one leaving the county attorney’s office. The Rustler reports that her assistant, Greg Blenkinsop, has also resigned and is in his final week on the job.
The party will continue to accept applications from candidates interested in completing Adams’ term through 3 p.m. on Tuesday, April 17.
