Meet the Chairman:
Paul Vogelheim was elected Chairman of the Teton County Republican Party on March 23, 2017.
Vogelheim has been a Teton County Commissioner since 2008 and served as the Chair of Board of Commissioners. He was the 2016 recipient of Wyoming County Commissioner Association (WCCA) Commissioner of the Year—“Riding for the Brand” and serves as Chair of WCCA’s Revenue Committee. He also serves on the boards of the Community Foundation of Jackson Hole, ConservAmerica, Jackson Hole Air, Jackson Hole Friends of Scouting and was one of the founders of the Jackson Hole Food Cupboard (food bank).
After his election as chair, Vogelheim released a series of guiding party principals for consideration and debate. The three central pillars of the proposal are Fiscal Accountability and Economic Vibrancy; Conservation and Public Access; and Respect and Compassion for Individual Freedoms. Vogelheim cited the Republican Party’s conservation legacy in establishing national parks, monuments, wildlife refuges and legislation like the Clean Air Act and the Clean Water Act, while expanding wilderness lands and wild and scenic rivers.
"I’m very proud to be a ‘Teton Republican' and to have the opportunity to represent the values we as a local party prioritize – especially conservation,” said Vogelheim. “From advocating for farmers and ranchers to hunters and recreationalists, we understand the importance of maintaining open spaces and public access.”
