WYO Candidates Play Politics for the Public

July 31, 2008

Jackson, WY – Politics are in the public eye today in Wyoming. Candidates vying for seats in the state legislature, county commission and town council in Teton County are gathering to shake hands with locals and answer questions.

Forrest McCarthy with the Wyoming Conservation Voters Education Fund (WCVEF) says working families in the Jackson area face special challenges.

"Jackson is a very expensive and difficult place to live at times and citizens make great sacrifices for the opportunity to live in a community with clean air, fresh water, and endless recreation."

McCarthy says the most recent poll on what people think is important in Teton County shows 73 percent say preserving open space and wildlife are their top priorities.

"This is a real opportunity to see how our future elected officials plan on representing this public interest and mandate of protecting our natural capital."

WCVEF is hosting the forum. More information on the group is available online, at http://www.wcvedfund.org/.
