Candidate forum held in Lee Vining Tuesday


Another local candidate forum was held this week, this time in Lee Vining.

Eastern Sierra Unified School District board members answered questions Tuesday evening about everything from busing to budget to their ability to work with the district’s superintendent, Don Clark.

The forum, which was held the same night as the second presidential debate, was lightly attended—about 15 people showed up, said Stacey Simon, parent and moderator.

The candidates are James “Jimmy” Little, Arya Degenhardt, Pamela Haas-Durhart and John Peters. For more information on these candidates, see Mammoth Times, visit
