SHERIDAN — The Wyoming Republican Party announced that Converse County rancher W. Frank Eathorne is now the party’s chairman. Eathorne replaces Ryan Mulholland, who resigned the position to take employment out of state.
Mulholland will now work as a technical account manager for Google in Virginia.
Eathorne was born in Douglas and raised on the family ranch near Bill. He attended Converse County schools and graduated from Douglas High School in 1987. He earned degrees from Casper College and Chadron State College. Eathorne served as precinct committeeman in Converse County since 2002.
In addition to the committeeman responsibilities, he has also served in every office of the county party including two terms as chairman concluding in 2012. He has served as delegate to four state conventions and co-chaired the Resolutions committee. Eathorne is currently serving his third term as Converse County’s state committeeman. In 2016, he was elected by the Wyoming Republican State Central Committee to be vice chairman, thus positioning him to succeed to the chairmanship.
