A two-term city councilman will run for a seat on the Natrona County Commission this November.

Ward I councilman Keith Goodenough formally announced his candidacy prior to Tuesday’s Casper City Council work session.

“I’ve been a state representative, a state senator, a city councilperson, and I think the county commission would be an office that I’d enjoy serving in,” Goodenough said.

Goodenough says he will appear on the general election ballot as an independent.

“People who are disgusted with the two-party system, I hope, will find that appealing – a different approach,” Goodenough said. “I’m not pigeonholed into one group, I’m just running as an individual based on my past efforts.”

Goodenough has a 22-year history in local and state politics, where he served as the state senator for District 28 in the 1990s. He also lost twice in the Democratic primary for governor in 1986 and 1998.

From 1992 to 1994, Goodenough served as a lobbyist for the Wyoming Coalition Against Domestic Violence.

The councilman was first elected to Casper City Council in 2006.

Goodenough will be a guest on KTWO-AM’s Report to Wyoming this Sunday at 7 a.m.
