Would-be Town Council candidates now have until Wednesday, March 12th at 5pm to file candidacy papers with the Town Clerk. Since incumbents John Eastman, Matthew Lehman and Rick Wood did not file, the deadline was extended from March 7th to the 12th.
As of Friday, five candidates had filed their nomination papers. They are John Wentworth, Deb Pierrel, Karen Sibert, Ken Murray and Elena Blomgren. Three others had pulled papers but have not yet returned them.
Clerk Jamie Gray also noted that during this extended period, all interested registered voters of the Town of Mammoth Lakes, other than incumbents, may file as candidates for the office of member of the Town Council.
