Cheyenne, Wyo. – Outgoing State Auditor Rita Meyer says she leaves office after being part of an effort to improve Wyoming in ways that will last well into the future. As a member of a number of state boards, Meyer was part of many economic development initiatives and building projects. "We made several good investments at the University of Wyoming," she said. "But particularly back in our communities and our community colleges. We will be able to live off of those investments for many years."
Meyer is especially excited that the new National Center for Atmospheric Research will soon open its doors near Cheyenne. She says that facility puts Wyoming on the international research map, and should benefit the state for years to come.
