Meet the candidates vying for a seat on the Mono County Board of Supervisors at a candidate's forum this Thursday, Feb. 6 at Giovanni's in Mammoth, hosted by the non-partisan Mammoth Voices civic education and advocacy group.

Three of the four candidates running for three open seats on the Mono County Board of Supervisors will attend.

The open seats that will be on the March 3 ballot are 1) the District 2 seat, held by Supervisor Fred Stump, who is retiring; 2) the District 3 seat, held by Bob Gardner, who is running again, uncontested, and 3) the District 4 seat, held by Supervisor John Peters, who is also running again, uncontested.

The three candidates who will attend the forum on Thursday are District 2 candidates Rhonda Duggan and Josh Rhodes and District 3 incumbent Bob Gardner.
