City Council

The Casper City Council hosts a work session on Feb. 23 at city hall in downtown Casper. Ten people will be interviewing Tuesday for the seat left open by former council member Khrystyn Lutz.

Ten candidates for a vacant Casper City Council seat will make their case on Tuesday evening.

The position, left open in August by the departure of former council member Khrystyn Lutz, represents Casper’s Ward 1. That area spans most of downtown, neighborhoods in both north and south Casper and the Big Tree neighborhood, and is currently represented by council members Amber Pollock and Bruce Knell.

Candidates will have 10 minutes to respond to a series of questions posed by the council during a work session on Tuesday. The interviews are set to start at 5 p.m. and, like any meeting of the council, are open to the public and streamed on the city’s YouTube channel.

Following the interviews, council members will convene in a closed-door session to decide Lutz’s replacement before announcing their pick in a special session later on Tuesday night.

Copies of all 10 candidates’ applications and several of their resumes are available to view on the city’s website.

The slate of applicants is varied — with four women and six men, two former city council members and several leaders of local community organizations throwing their hats in the ring. A pastor, a butcher and a filmmaker are applying alongside an attorney, a forensics expert and a coal plant supervisor.

The full list of applicants, in the order they will be interviewed on Tuesday, is below.

  • Dennis Rollins
  • Jacqueline Anderson
  • Kimberly Holloway
  • Zarryn Hinchen
  • Wes Connell
  • David Hulshizer
  • Shannon O’Quinn
  • Jai-Ayla Quest
  • John Minchow
  • Garret Poste
