Wyoming Rep. Hans Hunt to fellow citizen: If you care about what we do here, GTFO

Wyomingite and Universalist Minister Audette Fulbright wrote her representatives to express her concerns about expanding carry laws in schools and fracking. As she wrote: “Here is the response I got from Rep. Hans Hunt:”

“Rev. Fulbright,

“I’ll be blunt. If you don’t like the political atmosphere of Wyoming, then by all means, leave. We, who have been here a very long time (I am proudly 4th generation) are quite proud of our independent heritage. I don’t expect a ‘mass exodus’ from our state just because we’re standing up for our rights. As to your comments on fracking, I would point out that you’re basing your statement on ‘dangers’ that have not been scientifically founded or proved as of yet.

“It offends me to no end when liberal out-of-staters such as yourself move into Wyoming, trying to get away from where they came from, and then pompously demand that Wyoming conform to their way of thinking. We are, and will continue to be, a state which stands a head above the rest in terms of economic security. Our ability to do that is, in large part, to our ‘live and let live’ mentality when it comes to allowing economic development, and limiting government oversight. So, to conclude, if you’re so worried about what our legislature is working on, then go back home.

Sincerely,

Hans Hunt

Representative Hans Hunt
House District 02”

Yes, that happened.

My reply:

“Dear Rep. Hunt,

Regarding your recent email to Rev. Fulbright – Serving in the legislature is a privilege, not a birthright, and you serve all your constituents, even if they just moved here yesterday. You were a Wyomingite by accident. Over 60% of us, according to the last survey, were born somewhere else and become Wyomingites by choice.

If you’re incapable of playing well with others, perhaps it’s you that needs to go back home.

Cheers,
Meg Lanker-Simons”

I’ll just leave his email here: hans.hunt@wyoleg.gov
