Meyer to Run for City Council Again in November
Casper mayor and Ward II councilman Paul Meyer says he will seek another Casper City Council term this November.
“I’m a real businessman in the city, I will hold my head high due to my business affiliations and political aspirations - and at the time when I can’t hold my head high in this city, that’ll be the time I’ll leave office,” Meyer said.
In the wake of six fellow council members asking for councilman Craig Hedquist's resignation just weeks ago, Meyer says he will work to unify council again. He also says that he looks forward to turning his attention back to Casper residents.
“The last year-and-a-half has been tied up by issues that everybody’s aware of,” Meyer said. “It has kind of deflected my attention and got me away from the reason that I ran for office in the first place, and that’s to help the citizens.”
Meyer was formally named mayor after winning a straw-pull vote among council members last December. He was first elected to council in 2010.
The incumbent Meyer will face Shawn Johnson and Shey Snapp.
Meyer is a guest on this Sunday’s edition of Report to Wyoming. The program will air at 7 a.m. on KTWO-AM and K2Radio.com.
