GREEN RIVER — Former Sweetwater County Treasurer Robb Slaughter has announced his candidacy for Sweetwater County Commission.
Slaughter, the son of Dee and Elaine Slaughter, is a lifelong Sweetwater County resident and graduated from the University of Wyoming with a Bachelor’s Degree in Business Management and Administration.

“Having served as treasurer for 28 years, I had the opportunity to work with 23 county commissioners. Through this relationship, I came to appreciate the magnitude of the office of county commissioner and the effect it has on the lives of our county residents” Slaughter said.
Slaughter has served as President of the Wyoming County Treasurers Association, on several committees active in shaping Wyoming mineral tax and motor vehicle laws.
He has served as a director and president of the Board of Directors at Rolling Green Country Club and as a director of the Wyoming State Golf Association. He has also served as an advisor to several local boards and agencies and been a member of multiple local organizations.
Slaughter is currently a member of both Golden Hour and Young At Heart senior citizens centers.
“The county commission is Sweetwater County’s frontline in a myriad of areas that affect us as residents,” Slaughter said. “I would like to be a positive and proactive member of that front line. As your county commissioner, I will work my hardest to represent you.”
