Nine Republicans and one Democrat are making a bid for a seat on the Natrona County Board of Commissioners. Two seats are up for election in November. Both incumbents would like to continue, but they will face off against a large Republican field at the August 21st primary along with at least one Democrat.

Continuing with our introductory interviews with each of the candidates, here are three more, again, all Republicans.

Leo Sanchez, has been active in the local community for some 40 years.

“I intend to survey all the county workers and ask them what is right about their jobs and what is not and how they would improve it.  That’s my point of concentration.”

Sanchez says he won’t be beholden to anyone through financial contributions and he wants to work toward a viable future for Natrona County and the city of Casper.

Bruce Young is a small business owner from Mills.

” I bought a piece of property out side of town and I found out after buying this property everything I couldn’t do.  I’m tired of the tax payers of this county getting beat up at every turn.”

Young says he supports the rights of the tax payer and says he opposes the expansion of the Natrona County Library and considers it an unnecessary expense.

Ed Opella will be campaigning for re-election to his second term. He says the budget is an ongoing concern.

“We’re taking a look now and working on the possibility of going back and interviewing the different department heads and see where we can do some cutting and the possibility of partnering with the city.”

Opella believes its time the county looks to the legislature for support and reimbursement for state services delivered at the county level.
