Where you are two degrees of seperation (or less) from your Governor

from G.Tracy Mehan III/The American Spectator

I often recall my father describing Wyoming as the state where men are men and women are governors. It was the first state to elect a woman to that top executive job. Not for nothing is it called the Equality State. The sense of community and egalitarianism is palpable and far removed from the stratified and divided society of Washington, D.C. and its suburbs.

My hometown in Wyoming looks nothing like Cody, Yellowstone or the Grand Tetons

    LOL.

    One thing I love about Wyoming is that if you live there, you know someone who knows someone who knows the governor. Or you know the governor, yourself. Folks in Wyoming don’t feel as impotent about their government as they do in places like California or New York. They can actually have their voices heard in Wyoming.

    If it weren’t for the cold, windy winters and the mosquitoes in the summer, I’d love to live there again!
