(Riverton, WY) – Riverton resident Kelly Rutz has announced her run for Fremont County Clerk. Below is her announcement.
“Today, I am announcing my candidacy for Fremont County Clerk. I am running because I believe all our citizens need to have confidence in the election process & voter integrity. The county clerk’s office must be more accessible to our citizens by re-opening the Riverton office, as well as providing office hours once a month in smaller communities such as Dubois, Ft. Washakie & Pavillion.
“As county clerk, I intend to have open office hours so that citizens can personally have access to me, question any decisions & provide feedback. I will re-examine all fees that are charged to the public for services provided. I know Fremont citizens are already facing additional taxes. I do not want to add to their tax burden with higher fees of any kind. Taxes are too high.
“I am a graduate of UW, former public-school teacher, life member of the NRA, VFW Auxiliary and member of the Wyoming Outdoor Council, the Fremont County Republican Party & Fremont County Republican Women. I adhere to the state Republican platform.
“Finally, I believe that after 28 years, new leadership in the County Clerk’s office is needed to provide the changes our citizens seek in 2022. I believe our Fremont county citizens want a choice in their future. I intend to represent all citizens of our county, regardless of location.
“I ask for your vote in the Republican Primary on August 16th.
“Kelly Rutz, Riverton.”
