The 2014 Election: It’s a wrap

June 5, 2014

The 2014 Election closed this past week, with a landslide decision in the race for Mono County Sheriff, a surprise victory in Supervisors District 5 and three new members of the Mammoth Town Council.

June 5, 2014

Ingrid Braun, the new Sheriff-elect of Mono County, said this past week she had no intention of waiting until January to begin a transition.

“Hopefully, there will be a transition that happens smoothly,” she said. “At least that’s what I would want.”

Under the current budget, she will inherit an undersheriff, a lieutenant, four sergeants, 14 deputies and eight court screeners.

The 2014 primary election is not officially over

June 5, 2014

Seventeen candidates have been whittled down to nine office holders.

The parties are over.

The signs are coming down.

None of the races, with the slimmest possibility of the District 1 County Supervisor race where 49 votes separate winner Larry Johnston from Bill Sauser (see below), are going to a runoff election.

About 54 percent of Mono County’s 5,802 registered voters—3,114 voters—made their choices Tuesday night.

June 3, 2014

Road construction on the Tioga Road in Yosemite National Park began this week, and will continue through September 30, 2015. This two-year rehabilitation project is a multi-phased construction project that encompasses improvements to the Tuolumne Grove Parking Lot and the Tioga Road Corridor. This phase of the rehabilitation work will include a 15 mile segment along the road from the Crane Flat Intersection to just east of White Wolf. The construction work will include improvements to culvert drainages, road grading and pavement resurfacing, new signage, and road striping.

Mammoth, Mono voters go to the polls

June 3, 2014

Mammoth and Mono County voters went to the polls on Tuesday, June 3, under sunny skies and warm temperatures.

It was impossible to gauge voter turnout, said poll worker Jay Dienken.

“It’s quiet now,” he said at the Community Center polling station on Forest Trail, “but they come in waves.”

As he spoke, Town Council candidate John Wentworth rode up on his mountain bike to vote, while Mammoth District Ranger Jon Regelbrugge of the U.S. Forest Service was in a voting booth nearby.

June 2, 2014

Political observers haven’t seen anything quite like it.

It has been 20 years since Mammoth has had eight non-incumbent candidates running for three open Town Council seats. The race for Mono County Sheriff started out as a volatile contest, and then just kept getting more so.

Three candidates—Stacy Corless, Greg Eckert and Kirk Stapp—are running for an open seat on the Board of Supervisors from the Mammoth-only District 5.
