Natrona County Assessor Susan DeWitt will retire from her post Dec. 31 after nearly 20 years of service in Natrona County.

DeWitt, a Republican elected to the office in the 1994 general election, announced her retirement in a brief letter to the Natrona County Commission on Thursday. Her position is up for election in the fall of 2014, Natrona County Elections Deputy Clerk Chris Lindsey said.

Commission Chairman Bill McDowell sent a letter to the Natrona County Republican Party on Friday alerting party leadership of the retirement. Upon receiving the letter, the party will have 15 days to provide the Natrona County Commission three candidates to temporarily fill the position, after which the commission will appoint an interim assessor.

    Bill McDowell needs to resign his position as Commissioner of Natrona County and also his position as a trustee of the Wyoming Medical Center. After reading his letter to the Natrona County Republican Party we understand that he is confused and is possibly suffering from Alzheimer's or alcoholism or something that causes him to think irrationally. The letter is supposed to address the resignation of Susan Dewitt from her job as County Assessor. The letter explains "Susan Dewitt will be resigning his position as Sheriff of Natrona County." This display of ignorance from William "Bill" McDowell cannot be tolerated by the citizens of Natrona County. If no resignation is forthcoming in the near future, we the voters of Natrona County will make sure he never gets voted in for any seat in the county.

    Lets see... McDowell could hire Adecco to find his buddy Opella to fill the job?

Civil Dialogue

We provide this community forum for readers to exchange ideas and opinions on the news of the day. Passionate views, pointed criticism and critical thinking are welcome. Name-calling, crude language and personal abuse are not welcome. Moderators will monitor comments with an eye toward maintaining a high level of civility in this forum. Our comment policy explains the rules of the road for registered commenters.

If your comment was not approved, perhaps...

  1. You called someone an idiot, a racist, a dope, a moron, etc. Please, no name-calling or profanity (or veiled profanity -- #$%^&*).

  2. You rambled, failed to stay on topic or exhibited troll-like behavior intended to hijack the discussion at hand.

  3. YOU SHOUTED YOUR COMMENT IN ALL CAPS. This is hard to read and annoys readers.

  4. You have issues with a business. Have a bad meal? Feel you were overcharged at the store? New car is a lemon? Contact the business directly with your customer service concerns.

  5. You believe the newspaper's coverage is unfair. It would be better to write the editor at, or call Editor Jason Adrians at 266-0545 or Content Director David Mayberry at 266-0633. This is a forum for community discussion, not for media criticism. We'd rather address your concerns directly.

  6. You included an e-mail address or phone number, pretended to be someone you aren't or offered a comment that makes no sense.

  7. You accused someone of a crime or assigned guilt or punishment to someone suspected of a crime.

  8. Your comment is in really poor taste.
