GILLETTE, Wyo. – Shay Lundvall will be the next Gillette Mayor having beat out competitor Nathan McLeland in the 2022 General Election, according to the unofficial election results reported by the Campbell County Elections Office.
The election results still need to be certified before they become official, but the preliminary results indicate Lundvall was the top vote-getter in the 2022 Gillette Mayoral Race, claiming 4,168 of the votes to McLeland’s 3,781.
Lundvall, currently the city council president and the representative for Ward 3, has been on the council since 2017 with the exception of a brief hiatus that followed his controversial resignation in 2020 over a reported social media incident. He was re-elected to the position during the 2020 election.
He will take over for sitting Gillette Mayor Eric Hanson at the end of his term.
