We arrived in the town about noon and found the meeting place. The morning session was set to end anytime so we waited to see if anyone was there yet that was part of the Wyoming Food Freedom Act. After meeting another couple and the bill’s sponsor, Representative Sue Wallis, we decided to get some lunch before the afternoon session began. This meeting was in a fairly small town and it turned out that we had a choice of two places for lunch. The first place we went was so full that there were no seats. We went down the block to a coffee shop that had a few lunch options. In the coffee shop were two well dressed men. It was obvious that they were part of the meeting we were attending. We ended up speaking with them and one of the gentlemen was rather vocal that he was not really in favor of the Food Freedom Act. Both were very respectful though and we had a good conversation. After lunch we headed back to the meeting.
I have never been involved in anything political and honestly did not know what to expect. I have to admit that I was very impressed with the overall process. It was ran very well and people were respectful of each other even when presenting differing viewpoints. Turns out that the two gentlemen that we had met in the coffee shop were the Co-Chairmen of the Committee!
