Recently, the Wyoming legislators chose to remove the voters’ constitutional right to vote for the Wyoming Secretary of Education (SF-104). A petition to allow current Wyoming voters to have an opportunity to decide for themselves and future voters if this is a good choice is circulating in Sheridan and throughout the state.
Why the legislators want to remove this right from the voters is a mystery to many citizens.
Many citizens understand that Wyoming education has shown scant progress considering the billions of tax dollars invested.
However, to blame the voter for this is a bit of a stretch.
Wyoming law gives the citizen little time to think about it. If you have not signed the petition by May 26, hang it up, it’s over.
