Last week, County 10 shared Zecharia Morgan is facing two federal misdemeanors for throwing away mail that was for South Pass City and Atlantic City residents.
The mail Morgan reportedly threw in the garbage included the Voter’s Guide for the 2020 General Election from the League of Women Voters Fremont County (LWVFC). Today, October 13th, LWVFC released a statement regarding these allegations against Morgan.
Their statement is as follows:
The League of Women Voters of Fremont County was appalled to hear that a United States Postal Service contractor allegedly discarded mail, including our 2020 General Election Voter Guide. Americans, especially those of us who live in rural Wyoming, trust in, and rely on the USPS. We expect that this individual will be held accountable to the fullest extent of the law by the Cheyenne-based United States Postal Inspector for Wyoming and by the United States District Court for the District of Wyoming.
Although we are grateful to have a resolution to the mystery of the missing guides, we are disappointed that Fremont County voters in Atlantic City and South Pass were denied access to this educational resource.
LWVFC encourages everyone to find the Voter Guide here. If you have a friend or neighbor that doesn’t have access to the internet, please print copies to share.
The Voter Guide was produced and delivered at no cost to Fremont County voters thanks to hours of volunteer labor, individual donations, and grants from organizations including the Wyoming Community Foundation. We appreciate the work and cooperation of Western Printing.
LWVFC is a nonpartisan, grassroots organization that believes voters should play a critical role in democracy. We worked hard to produce our very first General Election Voter Guide along with the candidate forum series. If you support this mission, please join us! Visit https://leagueofwomenvotersfc.org/.
