Jackson, Wyo. – Oct. 4, 2016 – Teton County elected official Paul Vogelheim was chosen from approximately 90 county commissioners from across Wyoming to win the Wyoming County Commissioner Association’s 2016 “Riding for the Brand” award. The award is the association’s county-commissioner-of-the-year recognition.
The honor was announced last week in Laramie during the annual Wyoming Association of County Officers Conference. The “Riding for the Brand” award is presented to someone who has gone above and beyond for his or her county, the WCCA and the state of Wyoming.
While Vogelheim was unable to attend the award ceremony in person, he offered his thanks to WCCA and said he was truly honored.
“This was really a nice recognition for all your Teton County commissioners — Barbara Allen, Mark Newcomb, Natalia Duncan Macker, Smokey Kathleen Rhea — for building a strong relationship with our fellow Wyoming commissioners and for our hosting 500 folks for the National Association of Counties here in Jackson,” Vogelheim said.
“We are very proud of Paul Vogelheim for winning the ‘Riding for the Brand’ award from the Wyoming County Commissioner’s Association,” said Barbara Allen, chair of the Teton County Board of County Commissioners. “It is a real honor to be singled out from all the county commissioners in Wyoming and very well deserved as Paul always approaches his work looking for solutions, building relationships and doing the best for his county and state.”
