State of Wyoming Archives: on Families & Children


Matt Mead: Fund Boys' School; elderly-at-home; & Life Resource Center

We should not put off till tomorrow these things that can be done today. Therefore, I recommend funding for:The health recommendations are geared to improving access to care, prevention and more effective care, as well as allowing the elderly to stay in their homes longer. With respect to the State Hospital, Wyoming Life Resource Center, Veterans' Home and the Boys' School, these facilities do not have big constituencies or lobbying power to pound on the door to ask for resources. But our state has taken on the responsibility of having them.

Where our state has stepped in, we have to step up and provide good care and good facilities. That's the Wyoming way. And my budget provides for them.

Charlie Hardy: Many parents worry about not providing for their children

Hardy spoke to a couple dozen supporters who braved the snow and bitter cold to crowd into his campaign office in downtown Cheyenne. He told them he's running because many parents in Wyoming worry about not having enough money to provide for their children.

"There are sick people in Wyoming who are unable to go and get medical attention they want. There are kids who want to continue their education, but they can't. We must run, and we must win because of all of these things," he said.
