Gov. Gordon Calms Angry Back-To-Work Protestors at Wyoming Capitol

A meeting between protesters demanding an end to restrictions on businesses in Wyoming and Gov. Mark Gordon on Monday was by turns confrontational and civil as the protesters shouted chants at the Republican and later thanked him for his time.

Gordon appeared unexpectedly at Cheyenne’s Rally for the Choice to Work, engaging the 50 or so protesters who gathered in front of the Capitol to express frustration over the state’s health orders issued to slow the spread of coronavirus.

The protest was the third held in Wyoming to urge the state to lift the restrictions on schools and businesses that were put in place in March to slow the spread of coronavirus.
