Following are recordings of the Cheyenne LWV’s July 12, 2016, forum for Candidates for Mayor of Cheyenne. The Cheyenne Mayor serves a four-year term and earns $95,000 a year. Ten candidates have filed for this non-partisan race, and one is a self-declared write-in candidate.
Thanks to the City of Cheyenne for letting Cheyenne LWV use the council chambers for our forums and to Tim Costello and Charter Communications for recording, broadcasting and posting the forums online. Thanks to the Wyoming Tribune-Eagle for co-sponsoring.
Eight candidates participated in the Cheyenne LWV mayoral forum, and they answered questions in two groups.
First group: Richard Johnson (write-in), Stephen Ganison, Rex Wilde and Albert Romsa.
