Recently The Sheet has heard off-hand speculation that Mono County Superintendent of Schools candidate Stacey Adler may have decided to withdraw from the upcoming election. We spoke with Adler on Thursday, and the candidate was surprised to hear what are apparently errant rumors, at the same time firmly denying the assertion.
“No, I’m absolutely not withdrawing,” Adler said, adding that her intent to run has remain unchanged since she first announced several weeks ago. Adler is, at last report, running unopposed for the seat, but is still pushing ahead to election day.
“I’m not only in it to win it, but in it for the long haul,” Adler said. “I don’t know where this is coming from, but I’m looking forward to serving as Superintendent for a long time to come.”
Adler is currently Assistant Superintendent of Instruction for Mono County. If elected, she’ll take over for current Superintendent Catherine Hiatt, who withdrew from the race for family considerations, and nominated Adler to run in her stead.
