Barron

Jackson Mayor Mark Barron says on behalf of the town, he is happy to see the National Parks, Refuge and Forest reopened and the employees there back to work.  Barron says there is nothing more important than seeing our residents and neighbors back at work.  However, he also points out that while the federal employees are to receive their back pay, others in the community won’t be so fortunate.  Barron says it has been tough for people in small businesses including hotel and retail shop operators, restaurateurs, and wildlife tour companies who don’t receive any back-pay. When they lose their jobs, he says “they’re done.”  Says Barron:  “These people are hurt devastatingly.”  Barron says now, he is very happy to have the government shutdown behind us while still recognizing there are severe budgetary problems that need to be addressed in Congress.  However, he says the American people need to be back at work and people should be able to get into the national parks and monuments, and enjoy the outdoors without the constraints of politics from Washington D.C.
