Goshen County Board of Commissioners Chairman Wally Wolski has resigned from the commission, effective Saturday, July 20, after being appointed by President Donald Trump to become the United States Department of Agriculture State Director of Rural Development for Wyoming.
Wolski will be one of only a handful White House appointees in Wyoming. Wolski issued a statement this morning.
“In his letter of resignation, he stated that it had been both a privilege and a very rewarding experience serving on behalf of the county residents for the past six and a half years, and that he would always cherish his time spent serving as a county commissioner,” the statement read. He went on to express his, “appreciation for everyone’s continued support during his tenure as an elected county official.”
Wolski said it is an honor to be appointed by the White House in a position to help the people of Wyoming.
“I am very much looking forward to embarking upon a challenging new journey and this once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to serve the Secretary of Agriculture and the Trump Administration,” Wolski said. “I am anxiously awaiting to launch the next chapter in my life and continue serving my friends and neighbors in this newly appointed position.”
