There are two fundamental questions voters should ask every candidate for office:
"Why are you running for office?" and "What makes you different than other candidates?"
Here are my answers.


Hi. Thank you for exploring my campaign platform.

My name is Jonathan Schechter. For over 25 years, I have chronicled Jackson Hole as the economics columnist for the Jackson Hole News&Guide.

For nearly 20 years, I’ve run the Charture Institute. We study and work with not just Jackson Hole, but similar communities throughout the country.

I do this work because Jackson Hole is my home, I care about it deeply, and I want to give back.

Now I’m running for the Jackson Town Council because I want to give back to my town in a new and different way.

You’ll find out more about me and my platform elsewhere on this site. If you have any questions, comments, or the like, please feel free to contact me.

I humbly ask for your vote on November 6.
