Mono Countyâ€™s District 3 is made up of parts of Mammoth, June Lake, Lee Vining (after redistricting last year) and the Mono Basin. It ends at the Conway Summit line, where District 4 takes off.
Itâ€™s a district made mostly of people with links to Mammothâ€”for jobs, hospitals, shopping. When Mammoth suffers, District 3 suffers.
Vikki Bauer has been the districtâ€™s supervisor for the past seven years and five months. Candidate Tim Alpers was a county supervisor two times beforeâ€”once as a District 2 supervisor from 1983 to 1989 and then as a District 3 supervisor from 1993 to 1997.
Town Councilmember Skip Harvey may be running out of time but heâ€™s not running out of punches.
At Tuesdayâ€™s special Town Council meeting that dealt entirely with the townâ€™s fiscal crisis, the outgoing, two-term councilman went off.
â€śWhat a mess! What a total mess!â€ť he said to people who squeezed into a crowded Suite Z. He then issued a public apology for the actions of the current Town Council as well as for Town Councils past.
â€śIâ€™m sorry. I am truly sorry for what is going on here,â€ť Harvey said.
