The Campbell County Republican Party is accepting applications from people interested in filling the vacant House District 53 seat in the Wyoming Legislature.

The deadline to apply is 5 p.m. Monday.

The seat opened up when Rep. Roy Edwards died the day before the general election.

Those who are interested can mail their applications to the local GOP at P.O. Box 1252, Gillette, WY 82716 or turn them in by hand at the Campbell County Elections Office, located at the courthouse, 500 S. Gillette Ave.

To be qualified for the position, one must be a Republican who lives in House District 53. State statute also requires that a representative be at least 21 years old.

Friday morning, Barb Luthy, secretary for the local GOP central committee, said they’ve received a few letters of interest, but no one has submitted an application yet.

Seven precincts are included in House District 53, including 1-3, 1-4, 1-5, 1-7, 1-8, 1-9 and 1-10.

Applications must include a letter of interest and a résumé, along with any other information the applicant would like to include. The application should not be more than three pages long.

The Republican precinct committeemen and committeewomen in Edwards’ district will meet at 6 p.m. Thursday at the Cam-plex Heritage Center to narrow the list of applicants down to three.

The three finalists will be forwarded to the Campbell County commissioners, who will choose one of the three to fill Edwards’ seat.
