CHEYENNE - Gov. Matt Mead is adding Rob Hurless of the University of Wyoming's School of Energy Resources to his advisory staff on energy issues.
Hurless will serve as a member of Mead's policy team while continuing to work at UW. Hurless had served as energy policy adviser to former Gov. Dave Freudenthal.
Hurless says he's excited to work for Mead on energy strategy and to work on improving relations with the governor's office, UW and the School of Energy Resources.
