Candidates’ Unabridged Responses to Questions

For his Jackson Hole News&Guide columns of October 19, 26, and November 2, 2016, Jonathan Schechter posed a series of questions to candidates for Teton County, Wyoming’s Board of Commissioners, and the Town of Jackson’s Mayor and Town Council. Due to space limitations in the newspaper, the candidates’ full responses had to be edited, and the responses to entire questions had to be culled out.

The Charture Institute is a Jackson Hole, Wyoming-based think tank focused on growth, change, and sustainability in Places of Ecological and Aesthetic Significance (PEAS).

Such communities – places such as resort or national park gateway communities – have been growing and changing rapidly in the last 1-2 decades, raising concerns about whether they can sustain their essential qualities. Charture’s mission is to help these communities understand what’s happening to them, act to identify and sustain their essential qualities, and develop mechanisms for funding their sustainability efforts.
