Cheyenne City Council Makes Wise Decision on Real Estate Sale

The Cheyenne City Council wisely chose to reject a deal that would have denied them the opportunity to look at multiple offers for the old police station property at 2020 Capitol Avenue.  Had they instead chosen to move forward with the administrations proposed no-bid deal, it would have done a disservice to residents, taxpayers, and even the potential purchaser of the building.

It also would have contradicted city council candidates’ promises to work hard to make downtown Cheyenne the best it can be.

Education Consultant Faults Wyoming

Wyoming has been paying a ton of money for K-12 education since 2005. The reason for the heavy spending? It was a major Wyoming Supreme Court/Legislative overhaul of the way our schools were being funded to equalize spending among students.

Now we find that the consultants, on whose advice the spending was largely based, criticize the system for weak performance. Unbiased observers who look at the facts have to agree that skyrocketing spending isn’t improving results.

When Cheyenne voters rejected the city administrator proposal last fall, they reaffirmed their commitment to vote responsibly and placed a special emphasis on this year’s mayoral elections. Those same voters must now examine each candidate and vote for who is best-equipped to do the day-to-day job of managing the city.
