Vogelheim Announces He Will Not Seek Re-Election

Jackson, Wyoming – Teton County Commissioner Paul Vogelheim
released the following statement today announcing he will not seek
re-election to the Teton County Board of Commissioners.

“It has been a great privilege and honor to serve my fellow Teton
County residents for the past decade. After careful consideration and
prayer, I have decided not to seek reelection this fall. I have been
humbled by the support and trust I have received from this
community to serve in this capacity and will be forever thankful for
this incredible opportunity. After completing my term, I look forward
to focusing on my family and to continuing my work on a variety of
community and national boards.”
“This service has been both a challenging and gratifying experience.
I’m pleased to say I’m leaving Teton County government better and
smaller than when I joined the board. Among the accomplishments I
am most proud of are: An amazing team of county employees who
continue to step up their level of service with best business practices
and resilient attitudes to serve to this community. The rebuilding of
the Housing Authority Department which is now delivering cost
effective workforce housing solutions jointly with the Town of
Jackson and with greater participation of the private sector.
The delivery of transportation solutions based on an improved
relationship with WYDOT. This partnering will provide funding for
public transportation and wildlife crossings, plus improve our traffic
problems with a smarter county road network as an alternative to
bigger five-lane highways.”
“When it comes to local government, we must work to ensure that
every voice is heard and given the opportunity to make a real
difference in our community. It truly is the most effective platform
for democracy to work, so I encourage every resident of Teton
County who cares about our future to consider getting involved.”

Vogelheim has served as a Teton County Commissioner since 2008
and was the recipient of Wyoming’s 2016 Commissioner of the Year
—“Riding for the Brand.” He also serves on the boards of
ConservAmerica, Jackson Hole Air, and was one of the founders of
the Jackson Hole Food Cupboard. He served six years as the Chair
for the Jackson District of the Boy Scouts and received the Silver

President of Ring Lake Ranch and has been on the boards of Jackson
Community Foundation, Rotary Club of Jackson, Teton Youth &
Family Services and the Teton County Republican Party, where he
currently serves as chair.

A native of San Francisco, Vogelheim has lived in Wyoming since
