Governor Matt Mead hears from the public in Newcastle


Before the Wyoming legislative session starts, Governor Matt Mead travels to various towns across the state to hear what issues are on people's minds.    

On Wednesday, the governor was in Newcastle to meet with local government officials and then hear from the public. Popular topics were education, including the Common Core, and the shape of the state's budget.

Governor Mead says he feels fortunate he is able to have these meetings with the public.    

"I go around to different counties, city council folks and mayors and inevitably there's a discussion that gets to a local level. What's going on at the local level and I think that's appropriate because it's at the local level where the pot holes are fixed, it's where people work and live, it's where the jobs are," said Governor Mead.

The 2014 Wyoming Budget Session will convene on February 10th.
