Republican candidate for Wyoming Governor Matt Mead, an
attorney and rancher from Cheyenne, kicked off his first
official week of campaigning by spending a day in Marbleton.
During a question-and-answer session at the Marbleton Town
Hall, the topics varied from education to sage grouse, but
Mead also gave a list of "core fundamental" issues for focus.
According to Mead, Wyoming must work on:
• Jobs and the Economy,
• We must responsibly use and develop our natural
resources, our energy, our agriculture, and our water.
• Continue to improve the quality of life for Wyoming families and communities, this among other things includes strong law enforcement and good health care for our citizens
• We must improve our technology and connectivity to improve telecommuting and telemedicine
• We must protect gun rights and private property rights and
• We must provide the best education, K-12, our community
colleges and the University of Wyoming.
"These issues are fundamental to Wyoming’s future."
