Rumors about Sen. Feinstein visit not confirmed


Rumors that a representative from Senator Dianne Feinstein’s office would visit the Eastern Sierra next month to put pressure on Mammoth Mountain Ski Area to keep June Mountain Ski Area open (by withholding support for a bill for a land trade MMSA wants) could not be confirmed as of Thursday, Dec. 20.

Although June Lake resident and business owner Connie Black mentioned such a visit was a possibility at a Mono County Board of Supervisors meeting on Dec. 18, she said after the meeting that she had heard the information second hand and could not verify it. A call to the Senator’s press office was not returned before press time.
