Mike Gierau

I served for four years on the Jackson Town Council and six years as a Teton County Commissioner. I have been fortunate enough to be a business owner here in Jackson Hole for 37 years. These experiences have given me a good overall perspective on the issues that our community faces. However, marrying my wife Paty almost five years ago and raising two children together has given me the chance to see Jackson and Wyoming through new eyes. 

Having a family has given me an even deeper appreciation for life in Teton County. My family has also reaffirmed my belief in the importance of good government and civility. This is why I hope to bring common sense and our community’s values to Cheyenne.

I know that the bedrock of this community is the environment around us. While this is a local election, in a county that is a national treasure, our local issues can - and do - affect the nation.

I own Jedediah Corporation, which has been in business locally since 1980. It currently operates Jedediah’s at the Airport in both Jackson and Missoula, Montana, and previously operated Jedediah’s Original House of Sourdough on the town square. Jedediah Corporation has proudly been an active supporter of community events including Jackson Hole Live, the 100th Anniversary Celebration of the Town of Jackson and the World Championship Hill Climb. In addition, I’ve served as a member of numerous boards and committees. I’m also the founding chairman of Jackson Hole Air Improvement Resources.

With the experience and deep ties I have in Teton County, I will be a strong voice for our community’s interests at the state capitol.
