JACKSON (WNE) — A Jackson man who started his career as a Grand Teton National Park ranger has been nominated for a high-ranking federal job overseeing the National Park Service and U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service.
President Trump announced Friday that he had nominated Teton Village resident Rob Wallace to assume the U.S. Department of the Interior post of assistant secretary for fish, wildlife and parks. The U.S. Senate still must confirm the Evanston native, but Wyoming’s congressional delegation and U.S. Interior Secretary David Bernhardt quickly supported the nomination.
“Rob Wallace has a long track record of leadership on National Park Service and Fish and Wildlife Service issues,” Bernhardt said in a statement. “He will be a fantastic asset to the Department of the Interior, and I urge the Senate to confirm him quickly.”
