JACKSON, Wyo. \u2014 Local voters are invited to attend a virtual forum introducing Teton County Commission and Jackson Mayor candidates on Tuesday, August 11 from noon-1 p.m. The forum, which will be hosted by the Rotary Club JH and Jackson Hole Chamber of Commerce, will allow candidates to speak to their platforms before beginning a moderated Q&A session. Michael Kudar, a noticeable write-in candidate, will be introduced for the mayoral seat in next week\u2019s primary election. The Jackson native, businessman and civic steward will be ready to speak his mind about Jackson\u2019s most pressing problems. \u201cIf you are like me, I have been frustrated with the town government\u2019s leadership,\u201d said Kudar when asked why he is running. \u201cWhen my opponent was running unchallenged, I could not sit on the sidelines. I knew this was my time to serve. For the last 20 years, I\u2019ve been in training to serve in this role. I have the time, the energy and a strong will to face the tough times ahead.\u201d Kudar believes he is better equipped to positively influence solutions with private-public partnerships while preserving the Jackson way of life. \u201cWhen you go down neighboring streets and along businesses, you see \u2018Write-In Michael Kudar For Mayor\u2019 signs popping up all over town,\u201d Kudar said. \u201cI\u2019m getting four, five six calls or emails every day from people who want signs because they believe in what I\u2019ll bring to the table.\u201d Kudar understands signs can feel like a distraction, but they remind Jackson residents to get out and vote. As a write-in candidate for mayor, you will not see his name on the primary ballot on August 18. What you will see instead is an open write-in line. If Kudar earns your vote, one must take hand-to-pen and write-in \u201cMichael Kudar\u201d on the blank write-in line and blacken the oval to the left of his written name.
