Go get 'em, Wolves

On Sept. 14, candidates Bob Peters, Bill Reid (supervisor), Doug Northington and Rick Scholl (sheriff) took part in a forum moderated by Dianne Evans. The candidates introduced themselves and gave information about their personal and professional backgrounds. After the introductions, questions were taken from the audience. The questions to Reid and Peters covered a wide range of topics, including development in northern Mono County; the need for a health care facility in the north portion of the county; the effectiveness, or lack thereof, by the Board of Supervisors on our behalf; and their plans if elected. The sheriff candidates received fewer questions, but dealt with the issues of deputy sheriff priorities, community involvement, inmate housing, and their plans for the department. It was a long evening, but worth it for the approximately 50 people who attended and addressed issues they feel are important to our community.

Fire commission
