Fesko, Hazard, Peters, Bauer, will run for county supervisor seats in 2012

Business owner and Walker area resident Tim Fesko, Bridgeport business owner Bob Peters, business owner and county supervisor Vikki Bauer and retired Mono County Sheriff deputy and current county supervisor Duane "Hap" Hazard have announced they will run for office this June for the four-year term of county supervisor.

Three Mono County Supervisor seats are up this year; District 4, District 2 and District 3.

Fesko narrowly lost his bid for the District 4 seat to current District 4 Supervisor Tim Hansen in 2010. Bob Peters was appointed to the District 4 seat after former Supervisor Bill Reid died early in his term in 2008 and Peters served in the seat until Hansen was elected in 2010.

Hansen is now ineligible to run for District 4 due to last year's redistricting, which places Hansen's hometown of Lee Vining within Supervisor Vikki Bauer's District 3.Bauer told the Mammoth Times Tuesday that she would run again.

Fesko released an email stating he would run on Jan. 6 and Hazard released an email stating he would run on Jan. 8. Peters also notified the Mammoth Times this week by email that he would run.

Incumbents have until March 16 to file to run for office. All other candidates have until March 9.

The election is June 5.
