Wyoming governor-elect Gordon outlines vision for his first year in office

In his first news conference as governor-elect last Wednesday, Wyoming treasurer Mark Gordon outlined his ambitions for the first year of his administration, his immediate plans for the office and how he hopes to set the tone for his agenda in Cheyenne.

Less than 24 hours after a landslide 40-point victory in last week’s election, Gordon, a Republican, fielded questions from reporters across the state on everything from whether he was willing to expand Medicaid (he isn’t), and his opposition to tax increases to improving transparency in the state’s executive branch and his plans to address concerns with the state budget.
