Mono County voted in two new supervisors Tuesday night, with a third race that will also eventually bring another new supervisor to the table stuck in runoff mode.
Fred Stump, running for elected office for the first time, will replace two-term District 2 incumbent Duane â€śHapâ€ť Hazard. Tim Alpers, a two-time former Mono County supervisor, will replace two-term District 3 incumbent Vikki Bauer.
The two top vote getters for District 4, Tim Fesko and Bob Peters, will face each other in a runoff election in November. Neither of Fesko or Peters or a third candidate, Jan Huggans, got the necessary 50 percent plus 1 needed to avoid a runoff. District 4 did not have an incumbent in the seat, due to the fact that its current supervisor, Tim Hansen, was redistricted out of the district.
The new supervisors will all take office in January, 2013.
The vote broke down like this:
Fred Stumpâ€”55.03 percent, with 476 votes
Hap Hazardâ€”44.97 percent with 389 votes
Tim Alpersâ€”67.52 percent, with 449 votes
Vikki Bauerâ€”32.48 percent, with 216 votes
Bob Petersâ€”42.96 percent, with 296 votes
Tim Feskoâ€”39.48 percent, with 272 votes
Jan Huggansâ€”17.56 percent, with 121 votes
Turnout was lowâ€”only 50.2 percent of the countyâ€™s registered voters voted, either by mail or in person.
