John Wentworth and the Mammoth Lakes Trails and Public Access Foundation on Wednesday engaged the Town Council with a bit of political jawboning.
Wentworth, the president/CEO of the foundation, said if the council would commit $100,000 to the MLTPA right away, the foundation would in turn trim its request of the same amount in its application for Measure R funding.
â€śWe donâ€™t want to lose our momentum,â€ť implored Wentworth. â€śThis has been four years in the making. Itâ€™s critical we find the resources and staffing. Weâ€™re going to need all hands on deck.â€ť
