The 2012 election that wasn’t

December 28, 2012

No one dared care

While Mono County blessed the electorate with a genuine dogfight, in Mammoth, voters in the municipal contest were treated (as it were) to the Election That Wasn’t.

In spite of a town aswirl in controversy, finger-pointing, blame-gaming, layoffs and general overall mayhem, two seats opened on the Town Council.

Incumbent Jo Bacon signed up for re-election, while political neophyte Michael Raimondo brought his bagel-bagging electorate to the show.

After that, no one.

To spare the voters an utterly meaningless council election, the Town council snuffed the election out of sight and out of mind, appointing Bacon and Raimondo to full terms.
