BRENT MANNING CITES FAMILY CONCERNS IN LEAVING G&F FOR ILLINOIS POSITION

CHEYENNE -- Brent Manning, director of the Wyoming Game and Fish Department announced today that he is stepping aside as the agency’s director, effective Sept. 30.

While many factors contributed to his ultimate decision to leave a post he has held since early this year, in the end it came down to family.

“It’s a decision that has been extremely difficult for me,” said Manning. “My parents have significant health concerns and that is the largest single factor in my decision to go back to Illinois.”

When Manning came aboard as the department’s director last spring, he noted that his priorities were God, family and agency in that order.

“I’ve followed that map my entire career, and I need to hold to it now,” said Manning. “I honestly hate to leave. We have so much to do here in Wyoming and we’ve made so much progress, but I can assure you that the wildlife of Wyoming, the treasures that this state harbors, are in good hands. The wildlife professionals of this state are the very best in the business.”

Manning will be taking over as the executive director of the DuPage County Forest Preserve District.
