Election day

votersNationally, voters’ will wait to see who will make it as President of the United States. Closer to home, they will wait for the final vote on local leaders – boards of supervisors, city council, school and hospital boards.

In Inyo County, Mark Tillemans and incumbent Supervisor Marty Fortney are in a race for the Fourth District. Jim Gentry and Matt Kingsley vie for 5th District Supervisor. Voters have asked the candidates about how they will handle the Los Angeles Department of Water and Power, a loss of state money, and local revenues.

In the City of Bishop three seats are up for election – those held by incumbents Dave Stottlemyre, Susan Cullen and Laura Smith. They are running for re-election. Keith Glidewell and Pat Gardner are challenging them. City voters have focused on the business community and how to strengthen it.

School board elections also exist in Big Pine and Independence. In Big Pine, with three open seats, there are four candidates – Denelle Carrington, Robert Vance, Carla Bacoch and Sandra Lund. In Independence, three seats are also up for a vote. Candidates are April Zelak, Aldene Felton and Sandra Anderson.

In Mono County two candidates want the new District 4 Supervisor seat. The area includes part of Mammoth Lakes, Antelope Valley and Bridgeport. The candidates are Tim Fesko and Bob Peters.

There is a race for two seats on the Mammoth Unified School District board. The candidates are John Stavlo, Shana Stapp and Luis Villanueva.

Results are expected to come together late tonight at the Independence and Bridgeport courthouses. We will post results on our website.

I manage this site. One of your last comments was a personal, unfounded attack on a race of people. Let’s keep the discourse intelligent, thoughtful

The income inequality scale looks just like it did before the great depression, Hey dingo can you tell me how much the current budget is for our defense? Do you know how much it was in 05 when we had 200,000 troops on the ground? I’ll cut to the chase,… Read more »

You would think that by now the GOP would start to figure out that they must come up with a different notion of an “American” than an old white man. They should also come understand why it is that 70% of the Latino vote when to Obama. But they still… Read more »

Those lunatic Teabaggers (nutty old, white men) gave the GOP a black eye. America at large simply cannot relate to their nuttiness.

Agreed, Wayne. Until the GOP can come up with something better than “This is all about us old, white men” they will lose again and again. 70% of the Latino voters went for Obama. Why do you suppose this is? Then you have the guy in Indiana who said, “If… Read more »

My guy didn’t win I can live with that, I have to. But my concern is with our troops and diplomats around the world. I believe their safety is in jeopardy now more than ever. I believe Obama is oblivious to how dangerous their jobs can be.

Corporations are not people and Money is not freedom of speech! I can’t express how important that is for the income inequality and the way corporations have way too much power in our Judicial, Legislative, and Executive branch’s! So not only was I voting for the good President Obama did… Read more »
