Mark Gordon has his feet in both camps – not only is he the state’s current Treasurer, he is running for Governor in this year’s election cycle. Gordon commented on how unique it is that as citizens of Wyoming, we have a more personal relationship with our elected officials.
One of Wyoming’s United States Senators, John Barrasso, was also present at the dinner. During his remarks, he commented on the tradition of service that Wyoming citizens represent.
