Jackson Mayor Hailey Morton Levinson won’t be seeking reelection in the fall.

In a press release Tuesday, she said during her time in office she focused on issues and needs related to working families, childcare, healthcare and housing, and that her service to Jackson wasn’t just confined town limits.

“I am incredibly proud of the progress we have made together as a community,” she said.

Morton Levinson has been in Jackson leadership since 2012 as a town council member and she became mayor in 2021. 


Morton Levinson also served 10 years on the board of the Wyoming Association of Municipalities, an advocacy group for cities and towns throughout the Cowboy State — as part of an effort to help Jackson residents have their voice heard in Cheyenne.

Morton Levinson said she hopes she inspired other women to seek leadership positions in Jackson and beyond, and moving forward, she plans to focus on her family as well as running her family business in Jackson, the bed and breakfast, Inn on the Creek. 

The mayor’s term ends in January but election season is underway. Currently, only town councilor Jessica Sell Chambers publicly stated her intention to fill Morton Levinson’s shoes as mayor. In March, Sell Chambers said Morton Levinson had given her the “green light” to run for the seat.
