ALDEN - Just a little after midnight, Joshua Adamson was sworn in as the 20th Governor of the State. He comes into office during a time where he must rely on his people skills and moral character to ensure the State of Mesa stays together. The Governor did also say that many of his advisors are key to the success of the State. He says that he will hold a meeting tomorrow to discuss the ongoing tensions between the public and the Governor's Office. He says he will be EVERYONE's governor.
"We as a people must endure, and be, in part or full, true to our selves and correct the bigotry that persists in our country," said Governor Adamson. "We should work to better each other, and be more tolerable. What former Governor Kirk Paul did and the falsehoods he spread will not be tolerated and every person in my administration will understand what my values are going forward. Our state will work to strengthen our relation with the LGBTQ+ community and ensure that we can work towards a brighter and stronger future together."
The Governor said that his first 10 days will be about reversing most of what Former Governor Kirk Paul signed and the anti-trans executive orders he signed at the start of last month. He says that most of the executive orders will be addressed in tomorrow morning's meeting to address the ongoing and unfolding tensions between the public and the Governor's office.
Many political experts say that Governor Adamson will have a long way to go to mend old wounds and the fresh wounds dug by the previous administration. He says that if Governor Joshua Adamson wants to be a successful governor, he will need to show empathy and sympathy towards the LGBTQ+ and trans community moving forward.
"I know Governor Adamson is working hard to ensure that all harmful executive orders and directives are reversed that have targeted the transgender community," said Lt. Governor Gregory Brentwood. "He is working to heal and mend old wounds caused by the policies of Governor Paul. He says that he is interested in meeting with members of the Transgender community."
