WILDLIFE PROTECTION

Over the past 5 years, an increase in traffic has contributed to unnecessary and dangerous wildlife and vehicle collisions.

To migigate this issue, we must provide reliable, accesible public tranportation to get cars off the road and deploy tactics to protect our wildlife.

I will consider supporting new roads and expansions in Teton County if WYDOT is actively mitigating for the disruption of our wildlife by funding and building wildlife crossings.

WATER QUALITY

My goal for Teton County’s water is simple: clean flow in and clean flow out.

This means I will support the creation of a baseline program which focuses on the levels of contamination of creeks and rivers as they enter the town and when they flow out.

Additionally, I believe collaboration with local advocacy groups who provide education and programming around this critical issue is essential in the progressive management of our water use and water ways.
