Jackson Businesswoman Hailey Morton has announced plans to run for a seat on the Jackson Town Council. The Jackson native cites her involvement in the business community, her deep-seated roots in the local community, and a young perspective as the basis for her candidacy. Morton graduated from Jackson Hole High School and studied Political Science and Spanish at Georgetown University in Washington, DC. Upon graduating from Georgetown, she stayed in D.C. for two years where she worked for a startup business as a marketing manager and became involved in the political scene. Upon her return to Jackson, she became a department manager at the Jackson Whole Grocer. Morton says her focus will be on opportunities that give younger generations a viable and sustainable future in Jackson.
