Voters should ask three questions of any candidate:
• Why are you running?
• Why your particular office?
• Why should I vote for you?
1) Why am I running?
For the past 20 years, my professional life has focused on understanding what makes Jackson Hole different. Special. Unique.
I haven’t just studied Jackson Hole, though. I’ve taken what I’ve learned and acted, launching efforts including 1% for the Tetons, the annual 22 in 21 conferences, and Tetons 2020. I’ve produced Mosaic and the Jackson Hole Compass, and helped found Silicon Couloir. Now I want to give back in a new way to this community I love, using my knowledge, vision, and experience to help Jackson sustain what matters.
2) Why the Jackson Town Council?
Over the next 4 years, the Jackson Town Council will be the most important local government body in the region. The decisions it makes will shape the town, county, and entire region for decades to come.
3) Why vote for me?
Knowledge. Vision. Experience.
I have spent the last 20 years developing a deep and comprehensive knowledge of not just Jackson Hole, but similar communities around the region, nation and world. This has given me a singular understanding of what makes Jackson different, special, unique, and steps we can take to keep it that way.
The Town Council has to ensure Jackson runs well – services must be provided efficiently, cost-effectively, and at a high level. But Jackson can also be much more than that – we can be a global model for how a community can have both a healthy environment and healthy economy. Let’s seize that opportunity.
I spent 8 years as a publicly-elected trustee of St. John's Medical Center. I know how to get things done in local government. I've spent 20 years launching and organizing efforts in our community. I know how to get things done in Jackson Hole.
In short, I have an unmatched knowledge of our community, a clear vision of what Jackson can be, and the experience needed to turn that knowledge and vision into action. Knowledge. Vision. Experience.
