Wyoming Governor takes oath of office

Wyoming Governor Mark Gordon and other state elected officials donned yellow safety jackets to take their official oath of office Monday morning.

Wyoming Chief Justice Michael Davis administered the oath to Gordon and Secretary of State Edward Buchanan, Auditor Kristi Racines, Treasurer Curt Meier, and Superintendent of Public Instruction Jillian Balow inside the State Capitol. The ceremony took place in a construction zone since the Capitol has been under renovation for three years.

Later, Gordon participated in a more formal ceremony at the Cheyenne Civic Center.

In his remarks, Gordon called for fiscal prudence, government efficiency, innovation, and educational excellence. He also said he would work with towns and counties to make sure they have the tools and resources necessary to cultivate their own economies.

“These are watershed times for Wyoming and I have and will continue to encourage balancing today’s wants against tomorrow’s needs,” said Gordon. “Wyoming will set a course to be a global leader on crucial matters like energy, the environment, water, rural health care, education, senior care, and sensible, well-regulated government that seeks to preserve those principles enshrined in our constitutions.”
