Kathy Zack announces run for Inyo supervisor

Press release

Kathy Zack has announced she is running for the position of Inyo County 1st District Supervisor.

Zack is a long-time resident of Inyo County.  She graduated from Bishop Unified High School in 1976 and went to college at Stanford University where she graduated in 1980, and received her MBA from the University of Chicago in 1984.  She had a twenty-year career in healthcare management in cities across the country.

While in healthcare management, she worked for numerous health care systems in finance, operations, and strategic planning.  She returned to Bishop in 2003 to raise her family and operate the family ranch with her husband, and in 2006 became a school board member for the Bishop Elementary School District.  When the elementary and the high school districts unified in 2010, she was elected to the new board of Bishop Unified School District and has served as a trustee for a total of 12 years.

Zack says, “One of my biggest pleasures has been serving as a trustee for the Bishop schools.  Now that my children have graduated from the school system, the time has come for me to consider new ways to serve the local community.  Working as a Supervisor would allow me to more fully serve the local community where I grew up.  My educational training, my experience in complicated public health care systems, and my work as a trustee for the local school district have all been excellent preparation for this position. I look forward to the opportunity to give back to my community.”

(Note: The current First District Supervisor is Dan Totheroh)

    I don’t understand why she can’t continue to “serve” on the school board with her kids graduated. Sounds like some bias has been going on. I concur with “So many questions”; how is she going to “fully serve” the local community as a county supervisor? Sound like if she wants to “give back” to her community she needs to volunteer in some capacity for a nonprofit.

    1. What area of district 1 does Kathy live in?
    2. Why is she running? What is her platform?

      I am confused about the dislikes – these are perfectly rational questions to ask, questions I genuinely want answers to as I don’t know this person and her position and potential election will influence me and I my community. Can someone please answer them?
