Hill Plans To Resume Education Leadership Monday
Wyoming Superintendent of Education Cindy Hill says she intends to resume leadership of the state Department of Education on Monday morning.
She had been removed from those duties by the state legislature and Governor Matt Mead last year, but the Wyoming Supreme Court earlier this year struck down that legislation as unconstitutional. The court also recently denied a request to reconsider the case.
Hill on Thursday accused Mead and his attorneys of "plotting further delays" in restoring her duties. In regard to the high court reassigning further consideration of the issue to Laramie County District Court, Hill said her resumption of leadership of the Department "will not interfere with that work."
Hill, while noting she doesn't currently have an office in the department, says she hopes Mead will "hear my words and be responsive" to her resumption of leadership.
