First, welcome to new subscribers. We’ve topped 41,000 subscribers on our morning newsletter. If you just joined us, welcome.
Last month when we started planning our legislative coverage, our goals were two-fold:
Provide the most comprehensive coverage of the session in 2023.
Provide the most comprehensive coverage of any legislative session in Wyoming history.
We’re doing both. We asked state political reporter Leo Wolfson to quarterback the effort and he’s delivered.
In the first four days of the session we’ve written over 40 articles (below) and others are on deck. All of our stories are original too. You won’t see articles published by other news organizations on Cowboy State Daily. We pride ourselves on original content.
Nearly everyone on our staff is contributing to the legislative coverage and will continue to do so. Plus, this year, we have photographer Matt Idler who is visually capturing the events. This paid off on Friday, when Matt spotted State Sen. Brian Boner taking care of his 18-month-old son during the session.
We also realize that many of our readers are more casual observers of the yearly gathering of legislators.
To that end, we haven’t forsaken coverage of other Wyoming news events. We’ll continue to provide full coverage of Wyoming news every single day.
We’re expanding too. Stay tuned for more updates.
