Hot Springs GOP Moves To Censure Mead Over Hill
CASPER, Wyo. (AP) — Republicans in Platte County aren’t the only ones unhappy with Gov. Matt Mead.
The Associated Press reports that the Hot Springs County Republican Party also voted to censure Mead for supporting the effort to strip power from the office of schools Superintendent Cindy Hill. Party chairman Charles Curley said he didn’t have the tally of Saturday’s vote.
Delegates to the Platte County GOP convention voted 36-1 to pass a censure resolution against the Republican governor on Saturday, also citing the Hill measure.
The AP reports that three other county parties considered censure proposals or measures critical of how the Hill situation was handled in the last month — Lincoln, Uinta (YOO’-ihn-tah) and Natrona.
Mead spokesman Renny MacKay says the governor respects the free speech rights of all county parties.
