The adage that the only certainties in life are death and taxes doesn’t take into account the bigotry, racism and xenophobia of a small, ugly and vocal group of Campbell County residents.

In many ways, Gillette is the small Western town anyone would be proud to raise a family in. For the most part, we’re neighborly, we’re quick to help and we’re down-to-earth folk who believe in the value of an honest day of hard work.

The “straight, white and far-right Republicans” you speak of may not understand the meaning of “bigotry, racism and xenophobia” but they’ll get it when you call them “small, ugly and vocal”. Got that resume updated, Greg?
