Mayor Loses On Prez Pics

by Jackson Hole. Media

After a number of residents spoke in favor and against the actions that Mayor Pete Muldoon undertook when he removed the official photos of President Trump and Vice President Pence from the Town Hall, the town council said that the portraits will return.

Ahead of Monday’s 3-2 vote, Councilwoman Haile Morton-Levinson underscored that any decision of this nature must go through the council for a transparent public vote. Morton-Levinson further instructed that picture of the president as well as that of the governor shall be displayed in the Town Hall.

Teton County Republican chairman Paul Vogelheim was quick to praise the vote,”Tonight’s 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,” said Teton County Republican Party Chair Paul Vogelheim. “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.”

The scandal, which made it’s way onto FOX News, and MSNBC, among many others seemed to highlight a national rift between Trump supporters and Anti-Trump sentiment. Hundreds of emails were received by the mayor including at least on death threat.

  • Muldoon’s posse not gonna like this.
    Maybe he can calm them with more promises of free stuff.

  • Our mayor is a loser. Another whiney liberal loser. Go back to the big city.

  • The childish behavior of our mayor makes Jackson look ridiculous. Nothing like living up to the stereotypes.

  • Donald Trump is nothing but a NY bully His picture is repulsive. Chief Washakie on the other hand Always respected all people. His foresight created a 3.2 Million acre Reservation for his people including a Free bath house in Hot Springs State Park for all people. In doing so The Park can not charge a fee for it’s enjoyment of all.

  • Too bad for JH. After hearing of the mayor’s childish and divisive behavior, I cancelled reservations for 4 hotel rooms. I’m sure my 5 friends traveling from Sydney, Australia would have enjoyed seeing the city, spending money, and telling their friends in Australia all about it. I have 7 tickets to the rodeo on finals night which are non-refundable. If anyone is interested let me know. Willcalhounpdx@aol.com

    How did JH elect such a short sighted person as mayor?

  • My wife and I “were planning” a trip to Jackson Hole to look at real estate and possibly moving there. The people of Jackson elect this fool, which means the majority support this liberal agenda. We will look elsewhere.
