Wyoming Governor Matt Mead said that state leaders should look to the future in an effort to improve the state. In his inaugural address, Mead said he is excited about a number of things as he heads into his second term.
“We’ll continue to implement the initiatives set out by our state energy strategy. We will begin to implement the initiatives set forth in our state water strategy, we will continue to meet the challenges we face fighting for coal and against federal overreach. We will strengthen our University and Community Colleges. We will work to improve the health of our forests and we must provide better health care to our citizens.”
Mead also urged legislators and others to invest in the state.
“A belief that investment in our infrastructure, our University, our roads, our education system as a whole, our local communities, our citizens will not only provide the best return on investment, but the best quality of life for all.”
Mead, State Auditor Cynthia Cloud, State Treasurer Mark Gordon, Secretary of State Ed Murray and Superintendent Jillian Balow were all administered the oath of office.
