In a letter filed this morning with the county, Governor Mark Gordon has suspended Mary Kuhl from her position as Crook County Treasurer.
The governor states in his order for temporary suspension that he was asked by the Crook County Commission to direct the Attorney General to commence and prosecute an action to remove Kuhl from her position, due to allegations that she committed misconduct or malfeasance in office.
Gordon met with Kuhl at the Wyoming State Capitol and heard the charges against her as well the defense against those charges presented by counsel Jason Tangeman.
The governor states that, based on his determination that Kuhl has committed malfeasance or misconduct, state statutes provide him with, “The authority to temporarily suspend Ms. Kuhl from the further exercise of her duties as Crook County Treasurer until the termination of the ongoing removal proceedings.”
“I have determined that there were sufficient irregularities and deficiencies in the manner in which Ms. Kuhl carried out her duties as Crook County Treasurer to rise to the level of misconduct and malfeasance,” wrote Gordon.
Kuhl’s civil trial is expected to begin on October 12.
