Top Elected Officials to Hold Capitol for a Day

CHEYENNE, Wyo. –  Governor Matt Mead will participate in Capitol for a Day events in Gillette next week. These include a public forum, a walking tour of downtown Gillette, a meeting with local officials, a ground breaking of a regional water-supply project and visits to Campbell County industries. Secretary of State, Max Maxfield and State Auditor, Cynthia Cloud  will join Governor Mead.

“One of my priorities as Governor is supporting local communities and I appreciate every opportunity to visit people on their home turf,” Governor Mead said. “This gives people an opportunity to tell me what I need to do better and to give ideas for creating jobs and keeping Wyoming’s economy growing. I look forward to this and to similar trips to other Wyoming communities.”

The top five elected officials sit on the State Land and Investment Board and vote on funding requests from cities, towns and counties. “It is always beneficial to go out and see what these projects look like on the ground,” Secretary of State, Max Maxfield said. “We hope people will come out and participate in the public events.”

There will be a public forum in the Gillette City Council chambers from 11:20am to 12:00pm and the public is invited to a picnic at the Cam-Plex from 5:00-7:00pm.

“It is important to citizens that our state government be accessible outside of Cheyenne, and as your elected representatives, we personally discuss with local residents the challenges and opportunities facing Wyoming,” State Auditor, Cynthia Cloud said.
