Letter to the editor: Corless announcement

Stacy Corless

Stacy Corless

Dear Friends and Neighbors:

I am happy to announce my bid for the Mono County Board of Supervisors District 5 seat, representing the Old Mammoth area of Mono County. I hope to continue the strong community and environmental focus exhibited by our current Supervisor, Byng Hunt, and past District 5 Supervisors, most notably Andrea Lawrence. My nonprofit leadership experience and background in communications, earned during 15 years in the Eastern Sierra as a teacher, entrepreneur, writer, publisher, and nonprofit executive combine to give me a unique perspective and qualification for this position.

Working together across agency lines and municipal boundaries, we can realize a vision of Mono County as a wonderful, wild, business friendly, and economically sustainable place to live and visit.

I invite you to join me at a reception on Tuesday, March 25, 5-6:30 PM at Roberto’s Café in Mammoth; the reception is an opportunity to learn more about my campaign, to offer your support, to register to vote, and to get involved in local government.
Sincerely,
Stacy Corless

I live in District 5 and she will be receiving my vote! I hope her first hidden agenda has to do with closing old mammoth road, so people can hike across the street to Roberto’s. Than maybe we can add some signs all over and possibly get the cross walk… Read more »

We live in District 5 as well. The folks on the east side of District 5 are very aware of what Stacy and FOI has done. I think that their votes will more than cancel out yours!

I love all the comments here…

Not sure what’s worse though… the anti-Stacy rants, or the anti-OHV rants. LOL!

I’ts too bad she’s forever connected to both of these crowds, It’s actually a nice letter that she wrote.

So Sorry if my post was over your head, let me try to dumb it down a little for ya! When you insert your will into the affairs of others, you are forever connected to these affairs (good or bad). In this case, Stacy will always have a slighted reputation.… Read more »

I was raised in the eastern sierra and have lived here for over 35 years. I love the environment but things have changed here. The hard line environmentalist are taking over and Stacy’s association with “Friends of the Inyo” is a major concern for me. They have a separatist attitude… Read more »

Corless is an extremist and extremist of any type shouldn’t be on the council.

Chunk of Revenue…..Your post,mentioning the $$$ these ORV riders and their families spend kind of reminds me of that post a few months back that I found kind of creepy and hilarious at the same time….I think it was some guy up in Mammoth selling something pertaining to motorcycles in… Read more »

Big Chunk…..Just out of curiosity,when these mature licensed/insured adults who are responsible citizens who can afford their entire families to have expensive toys are riding through the residential streets,where are their 8-13 years olds going to be with their expensive toys ?….back at the expensive brand new 50 foot motorhome… Read more »

It’s so rare to see reason and thoughtfulness here on this blog. Your post is quite refreshing.

No thanks!
Sorry but we just cant afford Stacy’s well known “hardline enviro” stance. What we really need is less closed roads and more access for all (not just the select few).

You won’t be happy until you have torn up every wilderness region in the state, all in the name of “more access”. Sorry, but some places should only be hiked. I am an off road rider btw, and due to age and physical disabilities not able to do much in… Read more »

DT, sorry to confuse you with the actual facts. OHV people are not asking to open the wilderness to them, just not close the roads and trails that they have been using for over 50 years. Also, Green Sticker fees were sold to OHV people as a fee that would… Read more »

So keep all existing trails open regardless of the damage done to the wild lands by erosion from dirt trails, sediment in streams and lakes, effects on wild life and fish, etc? Is that it? Where is the balance? Is riding off road more important than other considerations? Those lands… Read more »

DT, you need to get outdoors more often. Again, I am sorry to confuse you with the actual facts that you chose to ignore. I have seen the roads they closed. Most are old mining roads that have been there since the first part of the last century. A perfect… Read more »

Reality Check….Think again…..You,and others that think the ORV people don’t want just about everything open to their “hobby” should check out the Panamint Valley.com website,and see some of the rants some of them go on about how not only all wilderness areas should be opened to off-road travel,but how “unfair”… Read more »

Wayne, you are totally missing the point. The point is dishonesty. I hike and some time ride my horse. I don’t own a dirt bike.

Wayne, I was in Panamit Valley over the Thanksgiving holiday. What the OHV people are complaining about is the fact that the the BLM has imposed a “Wilderness Area” designation for much of the Argus Range (west side of Panamit Valley) Many dirt roads that people have driven on for… Read more »

See? This is exactly the type of attitude that I’m referring too. Thinking that every motorized user is out to ruin the world. Calm down chicken little. HAHA!

Desert Tortoise = Stacy Corless? I wouldn’t be surprised.

Casper….not saying EVERY one of them is a filthy litterbug with very little concern for the land that they tear up and abuse….I’d guess it’s closer to about 65 % of them….maybe a little bit more than that,depending how many of the “guys” are together at the time,trying to impress… Read more »

it’ll be interesting to see how she reconciles her environmental views, was director of friends of the inyo, with her husband’s (mmsa’s ron cohen) agenda.

No Way! Friends Of the Inyo uses Green Sticker fees meant to enhance OHV use, to close roads that have been around for decades. This is a totally dishonest use of Green Sticker fees and we need honest people on the Board of Supervisors.

Well good! A woman running for a local legislative office is great considering that almost half of Mono County are women and it would be nice if their concerns which often encompass what is best for children, the elderly, and families are represented. It might also have a calming effect… Read more »

Charles James –
Agreed. For some reason or another, today’s men who are leading the way have egos that are clearly out of control. And this amounts to little boys quarrelling over their toys.
Time for our women to get more assertive and pull society out of the quagmire.

Here’s an assertive woman for you. Pay special attention to her sport, her competition and her accomplishments.
