Governor Visits Chugwater for Liberty Day


Cassandra Hager reports, chager@k2tv.com

The Constitution is no doubt an important part of America's history.

In celebration of this year's Liberty Day, Governor Matt Mead, along with attorneys across the state are visiting elementary schools to answer questions students have about the Constitution.

One of Gov. Mead's stops included Chugwater, where he spoke to a group of fifth graders.

"We wanted to be here in Chugwater to celebrate Law Day because as we look at the great country we have we also have to recognize what made it great, and part of that was our wonderful constitution.  So, to bring attention to it, to have an opportunity to discuss it with the kids and to answer a few of their questions, it was wonderful."

Along with discussing the Constitution with students, the governor answered tough questions, like whether he thinks world peace is possible and how we can achieve it.

"My favorite part about the governor's visit today was how he talked about world peace and how it might be possible."

Mead also said the he is glad to be Governor in a state like Wyoming where he believes real progress can be made.

"In Wyoming, the role of Governor, you still have the ability to make changes, to affect change.  In large states, for example California, there are so many problems, there are so many people that it's hard to have changes.
