Recently there was an article and several mentions in the Boomerang regarding a gathering slated for the Alice Hardie Stevens Center. The communication was not spot on...
— Four conservatives were in attendance not a group...it was a gathering of the like-minded
— It was opportunity for media attention to further the Trump resistance;
— It was admittedly organized by the groups “Indivisible” and “Forward Wyoming,”
— It claimed to be a nonpartisan event.
Nonpartisan as defined by Webster’s Dictionary is “not supporting one political party or group over another. Free from party affiliation, bias or designation.
Was it a well intentioned, meaningful, nonpartisan event? Well intentioned? Perhaps. Some seemed open and pleased that we were there and spoke. Others glared at us. Everyone was courteous.
Meaningful? I don’t think so. It brought nothing new to the table for discussion. The usual platitudes and complaints were offered — nothing new came up.
Nonpartisan? No. While the organizers claim to have no direct ties to a political party it was far from the right. It was not free from party bias, and Ryan Greene came to speak at the end. I doubt any Republican was invited to speak at the end.
Wyoming’s Congressional Delegation was invited to attend. Did party organizers check dates with any of them first?
