Mono County Supervisors Tim Fesko (District 4), Fred Stump (District 2) and Tim Alpers (District 3) were sworn in on the morning of Jan. 8 at the Board of Supervisors’ first regular meeting of 2013. Mono County Judge Stan Eller administered the oath.
Fesko, Stump and Alpers joined current Supervisors Byng Hunt and Larry Johnston at the dais. Hunt was then appointed as the Board’s Chair and Johnston was appointed as Vice Chair.
“It’s an honor to sit in the same seat I was in 29 years ago,” Alpers, who has served as a Mono County Supervisor twice before, said. “I’m glad to be back with team Mono County.”
Stump said he looked forward to “starting with a clean slate,” and alluded to the big management changes in the County (including the seemingly imminent departure of the County’s CAO Jim Arkens who may be taking a job in Sutter County) and the large amount of work that would be presenting itself in the coming year.
Fesko “dittoed” what Alpers and Stump had said and added that he looked forward to realizing all of the “great untapped talent in the County.”
Board Chair Hunt pointed out that it was the first time in 31 years that there was not a woman at the dais as part of the Board.
“There’s a lot of testosterone up here,” Hunt said. “But I am looking forward to an exciting term.”
