Friess campaign taps News&Guide reporter

Jackson Hole News&Guide reporter John Spina has set aside his journalistic ambitions to try to get Republican Jackson billionaire Foster Friess elected as the next Wyoming governor.

Friess announced Spina’s appointment as his campaign’s director of communications Friday. His two-year stint covering the town of Jackson and Wyoming Legislature came to a close the week before.

“It was a great opportunity to work on an exciting campaign,” Spina said. “I was really impressed by Foster’s ability to work with both sides of the aisle and build bipartisan support with some of his connections in Washington, D.C.”
