Board of Supervisors
The Board of Supervisors provides overall direction to the County. The Board acts as a forum for identifying the needs and desires of citizens, determining community consensus and for actively matching those needs with available County resources. The Board sets policies and exercises administrative control over County activities, and acts as an Appeals Board in regard to decisions of the Planning Commission.
REGULAR MEETINGS: First three Tuesdays of Each Month
The Board meets at 9:00 a.m. the first two Tuesdays of each month in the Board of Supervisors Chambers (upstairs) in the Mono County Courthouse, Bridgeport, CA. The Board meets at 9:00 a.m. the third Tuesday of each month on the 2rd Floor of the Minaret Mall (Suite Z Meeting Room), 437 Old Mammoth Road, Mammoth Lakes, CA.
It is my humble honor to serve as the Mono County Supervisor for District 1. I see District 1 as the heart of Mono County’s largest community, Mammoth Lakes. Within the 1st District are neighborhoods of working families, thriving commercial businesses, the community hospital, three school campuses and 25 acres of vacant land recently purchased by the Town of Mammoth Lakes for a locals only neighborhood. My belief is that strong communities have built-in resiliency to challenges that every community must address at some point in time.
Mono County District 2 is very diverse. It contains bedroom communities, agricultural areas and Tribal Lands all located in the southern part of the County. It is serviced by four School Districts, five Fire Districts, and a variety of Water, Sewer, Community Service, and Hospital Districts. These linkages allow some of its communities to feel more closely tied to the Bishop area of Inyo County while others are linked to the Mammoth Lakes area in Mono.
I am honored to represent 3rd District residents on the Mono County Board of Supervisors. The 3rd District is diverse, including the communities of June Lake and Lee Vining, plus a good portion of the Town of Mammoth Lakes. Serving on the Board of Supervisors is a chance to give back to a region that has been special to me for many decades, and to share my 40 years of experience managing public organizations. My goal is to ensure that we continue to make Mono County one of the finest counties in California, and a great place to live, work, and play. I will work with the County to ensure that residents clearly understand what they get for the taxes they pay.
The opportunity to represent District 4 is a great honor and a privilege. I have been visiting the Eastern Sierras and our family cabin at Virginia Lakes since 1966 and had the chance to move here in 1999 when our family purchased the Bridgeport Inn. As the General Manager of the Bridgeport Inn I have had the pleasure of operating a business that has welcomed and served hundreds of thousands of guests from all over the world as we employed hundreds of local and seasonal workers over the last 18 plus years.
First elected to the Board of Supervisors in 2014, I am currently in my second term, serving as the 2020 Board Chair. I work with my four Board colleagues and county staff to fulfill the Mono County mission to support our county's communities by providing superior services while protecting our unique rural environment. I believe that local government functions best when it is inclusive, transparent, and collaborative - that means taking a people-focused approach to policy, actively listening to residents, and partnering with other local agencies to address regional issues.
