Muldoon to run for council, not mayor

JACKSON, Wyo. — Current mayor of Jackson Pete Muldoon announced yesterday he will not seek reelection for mayor and will instead run for a seat on the town council in the upcoming election.

“We’ve accomplished a lot during my term as mayor, and I expect we’ll continue to do so over the next year,” Muldoon said in a press release. “My passion for improving our community is as strong as ever, and I look forward to supporting our next mayor and continuing our work on housing, transportation, climate change and all of the other changes we face.”

Muldoon’s announcement came on the same day current councilor and vice mayor Hailey Morton Levinson announced her candidacy for mayor. Muldoon said his vice mayor  is “exceptionally well-prepared to lead the Town of Jackson as mayor for the next four years.”

Mayor and town council seats are nonpartisan elected positions. Elected officials hold four-year terms.
