David Burnett M.D. has announced his intention to seek a seat on the Sublette County Commission. Burnett has practiced Family Medicine in Sublette County since 1989. Twenty of those years were in a private practice setting.
Burnett cites his experience in board function and operations, fiscal expertise, communication skills, leadership abilities and analytical skills as strengths that he will bring to the office of county commission.

Problem solving is a collective process. A strong leadership team will be critical for the challenge of establishing a vision for the future of our county.
