Thank you to Teton County voters for supporting conservation and community character on the 2022 SPET ballot!
On November 8, 2022, you – the people of Teton County – sent a strong message: We want to invest in the urgent and long-term needs of our community. From water quality to community housing, all 15 SPET (Specific Purpose Excise Tax) measures passed by healthy margins. This represents a $166M investment – a majority of which comes from tourism and visitors – by our community in conservation, health, education, housing, water, transportation, public safety, and so much more. The Alliance is proud to have advocated for all 15 of these measures, with many of them central to supporting our mission and vision to protect what matters in Jackson Hole. We want to extend a huge thank you to the voters of Teton County for saying YES to conservation, our elected officials for their involvement in the process, and our community partners who also promoted the importance of each one of these measures.
