How one woman is waging the battle for Jackson’s voiceless.
JACKSON HOLE, WY – Elisabeth Trefonas is skilled at making eloquent pleas on behalf of her clients, but on June 6, Trefonas’ voice trembled as she held back tears in front of a packed room in Jackson town chambers. She was there for the public comment portion of a council meeting that garnered 100 residents and advocates, organized by the housing advocacy group Shelter JH to decry Jackson’s housing crisis.
“I’m sorry to get choked up,” she told the town council. “But this is so important. We need your help. We are begging for your help.”
