Graffiti Campaign Hits Jackson

April 24, 2012 Jackson Hole, Teton County, Town of Jackson No Comments
Cover The Night

While not many apparently heeded a national call to cover cities across the nation and around the world with posters and messages to bring pressure onto governments to hunt down Ugandan Warlord Joseph Kony, the campaign apparently did not fall on deaf ears in Jackson.  Jackson Police Sergeant Cole Nethercott says posters and spray painted messages appeared in multiple locations around town resulting in costly clean-up by property owners and public works personnel. Nethercott says the graffiti was found in numerous public right-of-way areas.  He says while those responsible have not been located, they could be held responsible for the expense of clean-up.  Nethercott says there is a substantial cost associated with the clean-up of these items.  Consequently, he says the town would be interested in seeking restitution if authorities can find out who was responsible. Outside of Jackson, the campaign was apparently largely ignored.  The “Cover the Night” campaign was promoted online, however it also urged supporters to give something back by picking up trash, paint school classrooms, or engage in some other local action.
