This is good stuff. The woman in the letter is from Virginia. I did a quick Internet search. She’s not hard to find and neither is her political persuasion.
Get out of here.
That was one Wyoming state representatives message to a resident who contacted him recently stating her opposition to a bill that would have allowed people with concealed carry permits to carry guns in public schools, colleges and sporting events.
Rev. Audette Fulbright had emailed all state legislators, including Republican Rep. Hans Hunt, earlier this month to say she and her husband had just moved to Wyoming and were seriously reconsidering their decision amid the proposed expansion of gun laws.
Ample evidence has shown that schools and guns do not mix, and in particular, guns in the hands of amateurs/non-professionals is extremely dangerous, especially in any highly-charged situation, Fulbright wrote. To expose our children to greater risk in their schools by encouraging more guns on campuses is something that we cannot allow.
Fulbright also said she was concerned about the profoundly serious dangers of fracking and said the question of whether to leave was wrenching to all of us.
I know of other new-to-Wyoming families in similar contemplation. Your choices matter. It would be sad to see an exodus of educated, childrearing age adults from Wyoming as a result of poor lawmaking, she wrote.
Hunts response? By all means, leave.
That is a valid response. Ms. Fulbright will never find peace in Wyoming, but her politics will hurt the state. She and her ilk have destroyed her former home and now, as usual, after soiling their last cave, they want to move to a more pristine one- but without changing their bad habits.
Here are some of the links I found.
Here is she posting about her support of Occupy efforts.
“Thats me, down front, helping out with a GA at our local Occupy. As I caption this, we have had a very successful Move Your Money campaign, are doing a coat drive this week, and I bring 25-50 quarts of homemade, vegetarian soup to serve almost every week.”
Here is gets some letters of reference from like minded people.
Dear Search Committee Member:
I am pleased to have the opportunity to write a letter of reference for the Rev Audette Fulbright. Over the last four years I have had the good fortune of knowing Rev Fulbright as a community organizer, committee and task force member, and as a minister for all people. I have experienced her ministry and leadership on an individual and community level. She represents to me a vision of many hopes and wishes for this world. Two things especially come to mind as I write this letter. First, Rev Fulbright has the skills to help people feel like they matter and secondly, she has a strong ministry rooted in doing justice. She has strong organization skills that are rooted in Unitarian Universalist values. Her skills in bridging communities and cultures are excellent and I have personally observed her ministry on the Southeastern District Task Force for Revisioning Anti-Racism/Anti-Oppression work in our district. She gave our committee the gift of a strong ministerial presence that always called us back to our principles and purposes. Rev Fulbright is an excellent listener. She has the ability to challenge and support others yet helping them to feel a sense on mattering. This last year I also observed Rev Fulbright as a worship leader at the East Coast Gathering of People of Color. One of the many gifts Rev Fulbright brought to the experience was her ability to create a worshipful climate where people could share there joys and concerns as Unitarian Universalist People of Color and allies. She was central in bringing to life the spiritual dimensions of Social justice work.

Good job Hunt. Good job. She needs to take your advice and move along. She’ll never be happy in a free will, individualist, small government, low regulation, you keep the money you earn environment. It’s a wonder her head hasn’t exploded already! However, I hear California is looking for people like her- if she can afford the taxes that is.
