Cindy Hill Seeking Records for Her Defense
Cheyenne- (AP) Embattled Wyoming schools Superintendent Cindy Hill wants access to state records about her office and says she'll sue if they're not released. The AP reports Saturday that State Superintendent of Public Instruction Cindy Hill has asked all emails and letters from several employees in the governor's office and the state Department of Education. Hill also requested all department contracts, contract extensions and other purchasing agreements since 2008.
Hill said the information is needed so she can defend herself as lawmakers begin an investigation of allegations that have been raised against her. A legislative committee is investigating whether Hill misused federal funds when she ran the agency, as well as other issues raised in a recent inquiry report.
State officials have called Hill's document request overbroad.
