Cheyenne, WY (KGWN) - This month, Republican Party leaders in Hot Springs and Platte counties have decided to censure Governor Matt Mead.
A leader of the Laramie county GOP says the topic of censure hasn't been a discussion for them.
"Not only did we not consider such a resolution, but there was no discussion about censure or Governor Mead in general," said Jared Olsen.
Olsen, who serves as treasurer of the Laramie County Republican Party believes the censuring of Governor Mead is the voice of a minority of Wyomingites.
"They're upset with some of his policies. They're upset with the direction of the Republican Party lately. I think that's telling when we look at two counties out of 23 counties in Wyoming that actually passed such a resolution," Olsen said.
Olsen said he's not seeing the same opposition to Mead and his policies in Laramie County.
A resolution for a statewide censure on the governor could be discussed at the state GOP convention next week.
"I anticipate some discussion. Like I said, I wouldn't vote for any type of resolution and I really don't see it making it out of committee, then alone passing the floor on Saturday," Olsen said.
The state convention for the Wyoming Republican Party will be held may first through the third in Evanston.
