It went to a third ballot, but a Frankfort Republican caucus comprised of 18 precinct committee members was able to find its replacement for Mayor Chris McBarnes, who will resign at noon on March 2 in order to become the executive director for Wyoming Game & Fish Commission’s WYldlife Fund.

Current clerk-treasurer Judy Sheets will be Frankfort’s next mayor, effective 12:01 p.m. March 2, after receiving 12 of 18 votes during a third ballot of the caucus on Saturday morning in Old Stoney.
