Macker will run again for Board of Commissioners

JACKSON, Wyo. — Natalia D. Macker this week announced her 2020 re-election campaign for County Commissioner. Macker currently chairs the Board of County Commissioners where she has served since 2015.

Macker, a Democrat, was chosen to replace Melissa Turley on the BCC in 2015. She was later elected to a four-year term in 2016, grabbing 26% (1,297 votes) of the vote, finishing second behind Greg Epstein in the general election.

Macker cited her accomplishments as advocating and working for issues such as health-in-all-policies, affordable housing, early childhood education, community-based prevention, and expanding transit service.

She is also passionate about building an open, diverse Teton County that includes water quality protection and safe drinking water; affordable and accessible child care; effective mental health services for adults and youth; and economic diversification.

In 2019, the Wyoming County Commissioners Association awarded Commissioner Macker “Commissioner of the Year,” the first Wyoming woman ever named as such. Subsequently, the Wyoming Business Report recognized her as one of Wyoming’s “40 Under 40.”

Macker said she is running again because she knows there is pressing work that remains, and she is committed to the working families of Teton County.

“As a pragmatic, commonsense leader on your Board of County Commissioners, I am fighting for opportunity for everyone in Teton County. I strive for action to uphold our shared values and vision for a healthy, vibrant, and diverse community,” Macker said. “The change we want to see starts at home. Together, we can do it.”
