Commissioner Bob Maul was named acting chairman of the Campbell County Board of Commissioners Tuesday morning. He is currently in his first term as commissioner after joining the board in 2018.
Maul owned and operated a local alignment business, Bob’s Alignment, from 1973-2001. He then worked for the Campbell County Joint Powers Fire Board as equipment maintenance supervisor prior to retiring in 2016.
Maul has additionally volunteered with Campbell County 4-H events and programs in varied capacities for roughly 40 years and has served on the Campbell County Conservation District. He’s also a volunteer member of the Campbell County Sheriff’s Posse as well as on the Campbell County Sheriff’s Office Search and Rescue team, among other roles and appointments.
He replaces Commissioner D.G. Reardon, who served as chairman in 2020, and will serve through 2021.
“It’s all yours,” Reardon said to Maul Tuesday following the appointment and uncontested resolution authorizing him as chairman.
“I’ll do the best job I can,” Maul said. “I hope I don’t offend folks because I usually shoot right straight from the hip. With me, you get real lucky. You get what you get. You’re looking at it.”
The Campbell County Board of Commissioners is the executive, legislative and judicial governing body for the county. The general powers and duties vested in the board can be found in W.S. 18-3-504. Commissioners serve four-year overlapping terms.
