WHEATLAND, Wyo. (AP) - The Platte County Republican Party has censured GOP Gov. Matt Mead for signing the law stripping power from the office of schools Superintendent Cindy Hill and not reversing the law after the Wyoming Supreme Court struck it down.

Delegates to the county party’s convention voted 36-1 on Saturday to adopt the resolution, which also criticizes Mead for supporting national Common Core educational standards.

In a written statement, Mead said Monday that Platte County was Hill’s “home country” and the delegates at the convention were clearly her supporters.

Mead says the timing of the resolution is odd since it comes shortly after an audit critical of Hill.

He also says the state spends a lot of money on education and officials want to be sure taxpayers are getting their money’s worth.
