Governor Appoints Jayne Mockler to Board of Equalization

CHEYENNE, Wyo. –  Governor Matt Mead has appointed Jayne Mockler to fill a vacancy on the Wyoming Board of Equalization. Mockler is a former state Senator from Cheyenne. She replaces Deborah Smith who retired in December of 2012. The Board of Equalization is a full-time board with three members. Appointees are confirmed by the Senate.

“During her time in the Senate Jayne was a wealth of knowledge about taxation and I believe she will do a great job on this board,” Governor Mead said. “She has already done much for Wyoming and I appreciate her willingness to serve again.”

Mockler was born in Jackson and served in the Legislature from 1992 to 2008. She is currently the managing director for Inter-Ocean Development. Mockler has served on many boards, including the Wyoming Taxpayers Association, Wyoming Komen for the Cure and others.

“The Board of Equalization plays an important role in resolving disputes related to taxation and I have a deep interest in this policy area,” Mockler said. “I thank Governor Mead for this opportunity.”
