State Auditor Kristi Racines, one of two women holding a statewide elected office, took a photograph of the Girl Guards standing at the foot of the capitol steps.
Racines refunds nearly $8,000 the previous auditor had charged two requestors in the first and controversial public use of new rules.
After they paid $7,820, two groups followed through on threats to sue the state auditor saying she’s been too slow fulfilling their request.
They’ve paid thousands in fees and waited months, but two advocacy groups don’t have the public records they requested. Who are they, what’s the holdup and what does it mean for Wyoming's new fees for records rules?
Having written about the Wyoming State Auditor in a previous column, and received a summons to her office as a result, Geoffrey O’Gara decided he ought to learn what the elected position actually entails. Turns out the auditor “spends the money.”
