Governor Mead Responds to Hill Rejection

Cheyenne, WY (KGWN) - Wyoming Superintendent of Public Instruction Cindy Hill is rejecting an offer from the Attorney General which would allow her to return as head of the Education Department while litigation over five minor issues continues.

Tuesday, Governor Matt mead e-mailed Hill saying, "Senate File 104 remains in full force and effect until a court order is entered."

Mead proceeded to tell Hill, "You have gone from demanding to be at the Department of Education without a court order to now refusing to be back at the Department of Education with a court order."

During a news conference Wednesday afternoon, Mead said the Department of Education, "Shouldn't be used as a political football."

When asked if he thought Hill was milking the situation for political gain Mead said, "I don't know her motivations, but when you see an offer to get her back there immediately after she's been complaining that she's somehow barred from going there when in fact we're waiting for a court order, and then she rejects that, I don't understand what the point of that is."
