A former state legislator seeks election to the Sweetwater County Board of County Commissioners.

Rock Springs resident Joe Barbuto, a Democrat, announced his intent to run last week in a press release.

Barbuto previously served as a representative in House District 48, serving for two terms.

He serves as the chairman for the Wyoming Democratic Party, serves on the Sweetwater County Library Foundation board and the Rock Springs Historical Museum board.

"After careful consideration, I have decided to become a candidate for the Sweetwater County Board of Commissioners," Barbuto said in a press release.

"The idea that great things can be accomplished by those who are willing to listen, act with integrity, work hard, and collaborate is what motivates me in this race."

Barbuto said his campaign will focus on ways the commissioners can promote economic development, protect and enhance public lands and ensure the county is managed in a way promoting civility, productivity and efficiency.

"New opportunities for growth and prosperity exist, but it will take a fresh perspective and willingness to try new things," Barbuto said.

"That's what I bring to this race," Barbuto said.

"I am looking forward to the campaign and the chance to meet and visit with folks from across the county," he said.
