THATCHER – Those interested in filling the remaining two-years of former Thatcher Town Council member Wayne Griffin’s term need to reply to the town by closing time on Tuesday, April 10.

Griffin, who was sworn in nearly a decade ago in December 2008, resigned from his council seat at the town of Thatcher’s meeting in March.

“He (Griffin) did a good job,” Thatcher Fire Chief Mike Payne said. “He was real concerned with the issues of the town.”

Those interested in filling the term need to have a letter of interest with qualifications submitted to the Thatcher Town Clerk’s Office by Tuesday, April 10.
