On Monday, June 19, 2017, the Jackson Town Council voted to restore photos of the U.S. President and Vice President to the Town Hall and to ensure their permanent placement in the town government building.
The discussion by the Jackson Town Council represents the very best of our community. Citizens with diverse opinions were able to come together and engage in a passionate, but civil dialogue. Our form of government is much bigger than any one position, person or party, but our respect for our government and its institutions is instrumental to its survival.
More than 650 Teton County residents and 1,200 individuals around the country – Democrats, Republicans and Independents – voiced their support for returning the photos of the U.S. President and Vice President and ensuring their permanent placement moving forward. Every resident of our community has the right to have their voice heard.
We appreciate the decisive and swift action taken by the Jackson Town Council and thank Councilwoman Hailey Morton-Levinson for her leadership on this issue.
