The Teton County Commission Thursday will choose from three individuals for consideration by the Teton County Commission to fill the seat on the commission left vacant when Leland Christensen became a state senator. Meeting last Thursday, 33 members of the the Republican Central Committee selected Chris Tice, Kelly Lockhart and Paul Perry as the final candidates for that post from a field of 16 applicants. Republican Chairperson Lisa DaCosta said the applicants were all remarkably qualified, displayed extensive public service experience and strong Republican values. Consequently, DaCosta says, the choice of finalists was difficult. County Commission Chairman Ben Ellis says the three will be interviewed by the remaining commissioners Thursday, and he is hopeful that a decision for the appointment can be made at that time.
