Signatures sought for petition


August 16, 2017

Sweetwater County’s group for Wyoming Promise will collect petition signatures on the corner of S. 2nd E. and E. 4th S. adjacent to Evers Park in Green River Friday between 1-8 p.m., and on Saturday between 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. 

Wyoming Promise is an organization whose effort is aimed at overturning the Supreme Court’s 2010 decision that prohibits the government from restricting independent political expenditures by nonprofit corporations, for-profit corporations, labor unions and other associations. 

The mission of Wyoming Promise is simple: to call for a 28th amendment to the U.S. Constitution that would overturn Citizens United vs. FEC through a statewide ballot initiative.

Cathy Denman and Mike Masterson, Sweetwater County team leaders, will be joined by other petition carriers, including Betty Auld, Dana Furgason, Jackie Herwaldt, Janis Knadjian, Miritt Comforti, Moriah Reinholz, RJ Pieper and Ted Barney.

There will also be T-shirts for sale at $28 each and a donation jar with funds going to the Wyoming Promise effort on site.

The state-wide organization is chaired by Ken Chestek of Laramie with Lynn Horton Morrison of Powell co-chair and Shelby Shadwell of Laramie serving as treasurer. More information can be found at
