On the GOP Petition

The Teton County Democrats find that the petition filed by the GOP is another attempt to derail the discourse around our real local issues. Instead of focusing on critical local issues, the GOP and their chair have decided to use an interior decorating decision to polarize our local political climate with ugly national politics. Teton County has much work to do for our unique environment, on affordable housing, on immigration, and on transportation.
