Reynolds Pomeroy Announces for Teton County Commission
This is exciting news...
Reynolds Pomeroy formally announced his candidacy as a Republican for the Teton County Commission on Monday, May 19th.
Pomeroy has been a resident of Teton County since 1980, and will bring over thirty years of conservation-minded business ownership and public service to the position. He served two terms as Teton County Planning Commissioner, two years as its Chair. He served six years on the board of the Jackson Hole Land Trust, and is a founding and still-active board member of the Snake River Fund, currently serving as its president. He has recently joined the Park Advisory Board of the Rendezvous Lands Conservancy.
"When this opportunity to run arrived and I was encouraged by others to enter the race, it presented an opportunity to give back to the community where I have lived for nearly 35 years," said Pomeroy. "Throughout my career, and public service, I have seen how private sector solutions have strengthened not only the work of government, but also the depth and breadth of the public's engagement as stakeholders. Collaboration works, and I will bring that perspective and experience to bear, if I'm elected. I have a lead-by-example philosophy and work-ethic that serves me well in both team and leadership capacities, and I am committed to always working for reasonable and meaningful improvements that achieve a more accountable and fiscally responsible county government," says Pomeroy.
"The uniqueness, and in many ways the strength of this community, lies in our collective ability to identify, regularly reassess and ultimately implement policies that realize the best balance between our people and their long-standing commitment to meaningful and sustainable environmental stewardship," he said. "With this announcement, I hope to hear from and will listen to the full spectrum of citizens in Teton County, regarding their concerns about and vision for our future and especially regarding our implementation of the common values of our new comprehensive land use plan."
Pomeroy was a founder and principal co-owner of Westbank Anglers, a locally-based outfitter, retail and mail-order business from 1986 until 2002. He became the general manager of the Crescent H Ranch in 2003 and, later, in 2010, the general manager of Watchguard Security Systems. He just finished a season as a volunteer JHMR Ski Host, was a scenic boatman for Barker-Ewing Scenic Trips in Grand Teton National Park in 2013, and is currently a sales associate with The Clear Creek Group in Jackson. He lives in Wilson with his wife of 28 years and their two teenage children.
