Marguerite Herman takes A Look at Wyoming Government

Marguerite Herman of Cheyenne ran an unsuccessful campaign for county commissioner in 2012. Instead of a learned, experienced Democrat, we got a Tea Party Republican. So it goes. 

This little setback was just a bump in the road for Herman, who is usually busy with 101 things. She's been writing a book and will stage a signing March 16 in Casper. Here's the info from the Casper Star-Tribune:
Marguerite Herman, author of A Look at Wyoming Government, will sign copies of the book this month in Casper. This is the seventh edition of the book, published by the League of Women Voters of Wyoming. Originally written in 2006, it includes updates in legislative districting, governing of the Eastern Shoshone and Northern Arapahoe tribes, the creation of circuit courts and other topics.

Herman has been the League’s lobbyist at the Wyoming Legislature for 15 years. She covered state government for The Associated Press from 1980 to 1986 and traced the development of school finance reform through the 1990s. 
“I wrote the seventh edition of A Look at Wyoming Government to cover issues that are useful for people to understand their government, how it raises revenue and spends it, how it passes laws in the Legislature, executes them in the Executive branch and interprets them in the courts,” Herman said in a release.
