A letter from County Commissioner candidate Andrew Byron

This message is paid for by Andrew Byron for County Commissioner

Dear Teton County Voters,

It’s been an honor to get to know so many of you through this campaign season. Election Day is almost here, and in an effort to connect with those of you I have not met yet, here is a little bit about me and why I’m running to be a Teton County Commissioner.

I was born and raised in Jackson. I went to the Wilson School, Jackson Hole Middle School, Jackson Hole High School and the University of Wyoming. I played golf and football in high school and had a radio show with my best friend, Jesse Horn. I still run chains at the home football games with other JHHS alums and coach the JHHS Ski Team.

I graduated from UW with a degree in political science. When I moved back to Jackson, I became a fishing guide and turned my love of our local waters into a profession. I became a volunteer board member for Parks & Rec. I now co-own an outfitting business and sit on the board of the Snake River Fund.

I am volunteer firefighter for Teton County Fire/EMS and am truly honored to be a first responder in this county. I spend time at St. John’s Medical Center, Teton Behavioral Therapy, Teton Literacy Center, and the Senior Center with my certified therapy dog, Teak.

My wife, Bayless, and I recently bought a house in Hoback where we live with our two chocolate labs.

I am running for Teton County Commissioner because I want to continue my history of service to this community. I have thoughtful, reasonable solutions to the issues facing our county today, and I promise to approach every situation with logic and common sense.

Feel free to call or email me anytime with questions or concerns, and I humbly ask that you cast your vote for me, Andrew Byron, tomorrow.

Warm Regards,
