Natrona County Commission, Candidates Speak Part 3
This is the final three in a series of introductory interviews with Natrona County Commission Candidates.
There are 10 in all, nine Republicans and one Democrat who will vie for the two open seats up for election in November. The primaries on August 21st will trim that list down to four. Two from each party.
At this time there is only one Democrat in the running, however a second write-in candidate is a possibility.
Gino Cerullo, the one Democrat, is currently a member of the Natrona County Planning and Zoning Commission, and has lived in the county since 1974.
"I believe we have too much government. Government has its place. I think laws of the land and the constitution are what we all should live by. I think that regulations should be used as guidelines not as law."
Cerullo says communication is key and he'd like to see things open up so that the public knows whats going on in a timely way.
Listen here for the extended interview with Gino Cerullo.
Robert Crosby, a Republican, is a welder who lives in Casper.
"I just feel like the elected officials we have aren't listening to us as constituents. That's why I'm running."
Crosby says he's also concerned about an increase in bureaucracy within county government.
Listen here for his full interview.
Finally Casper resident, Republican, and small business owner, Brian Devault, says he wants to make sure that tax payer money stays in the county.
"When we have projects, building projects in town, we want to use local contractors to do the work and not send our money out of state to other towns."
Devault also believes the county budget needs a line by line going through.

Candidate Lance Lyon also registered with the Natrona County Clerk, but declined to be interviewed.
