In District 4 – Incumbent Supervisor Marty Fortney, Independence residents Nina Weisman and Christopher Dangwillo and from Big Pine – Mark Tillemans.

In District 5 – Incumbent Supervisor Richard Cervantes, Matt Kingsley and Jim Gentry.

Competing in Mono County in District 2 – Incumbent Supervisor Hap Hazard and Long Valley Fire Chief Fred Stump.

In District 3 – Incumbent Supervisor Vikki Bauer and Tim Alpers

In District 4 – Jan Huggans, Tim Fesko and Bob Peters.

Inyo and Mono also have a Congressional race in new District 8.  There are 13 candidates which some reports have said is the most candidates in a California congressional race on record.  Inyo and Mono historically have a high voter turn-out and so even our sparsely populated are is critical in this race.  A run-off is expected.

We will post results on our website, sierrawave.net and report on radio and TV news when information becomes available.

    Conservative pundits Sean Hannity, Rush Limbaugh, and Ann Coulter have spoken out against Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney, with Coulter even promising to campaign for Obama if Romney is the Republican nominee. Here are some of the reasons:

    Fears Romney will take away America’s God-given right to torture a Muslim

    Too Utah-ish

    Romney and Coulter have both dated same girl from Salt Lake City

    Romney strongly, but not vehemently, supports the war on terror

    Has been spotted conversing with Democrats

    Book sales, speaking fees, TV talk shows

    Romney is soft on hate

    I think their are a few honest politicians holding local office. But it does seem like the higher up they get the more they have to sell their soul to fiance their elections.

    Until it is100% illegal for an elected official to accept one thin dime from any outside source, the system you have in place will always be a corrupt one.

    Is there such a person? In any party?

    So wave the flag harder than the other guy and demonize him all you want if this makes you feel better. The corruption continues.

    incumbent supervisors have done enough damage. I hope they get voted out.

      Agreed, Vicki (Icky) Bauer has only served her personal interests specific to keeping her job rather than what is required by law. With Wilbrecht gone she had to operate covertly instead of the shove it down your throat approach, I hope she ends up like the others she was responsible fo removing. In my opinion she represents the worst of the political process.
