From: Ralph Obenberger, Mono County Sheriff / Coroner
I am announcing that I have filed candidate nomination papers seeking to continue serving the residents of Mono County as their Sheriff/Coroner.
Since being unanimously endorsed and appointed by the Mono County Board of Supervisors, I have made significant changes within the Sheriff’s Office to enhance law enforcement safety for Mono County.
These positive changes include permanently assigning a deputy sheriff to our school campuses to enhance security and to interact with the children, a proactive stance on fighting criminal and narcotic issues in both the county areas and Town of Mammoth Lakes, and obtaining funding of nearly $250,000.00 from the Community Corrections Partnership for upgrading technologies for jail security and dispatch services.
I have served Mono County residents since 2000 when I was hired as a June Lake Resident Deputy. I have raised my family in Mono County. My children attended and graduated from Mono County Schools and I have volunteered for many local groups and organizations. These experiences give me a unique perspective on what it takes to meet the diverse law enforcement needs of our communities.
The Sheriff’s Office has vast responsibilities far beyond routine patrol. I interact daily with county, state and other justice partners. We manage a jail facility, coroner duties, Office of Emergency Services, search and rescue, court security, off highway vehicle programs, boating safety programs, and dispatch services for a multitude of emergency service and public safety allied agencies. Most importantly I manage our many budgets in a fiscally responsible manner. I have experience and additional training in all of these areas of operations. I have managed all of our budgets for the past six years and each budget was adhered to.
As your Sheriff I enjoy interacting with the citizens and visitors of Mono County. They are the ones who we help on a daily basis. They are the ones who receive courteous and professional law enforcement service from my staff. The people of Mono County can be proud of the Mono County Sheriff’s Office, as I know I am very proud of the Office itself and each and every employee who works for me.
I have the support and endorsement from the Mono County Public Safety Officer’s Association, Mono County Deputy Sheriff’s Association, Mono County Fire Chiefs Association, local business owners, along with current and former government officials. With these I will continue to move the Sheriff’s Office forward into the next four years.
Managing the Mono County Sheriff’s Office is a job that I love. With my background, knowledge and expertise I look forward to continuing to serve as your Sheriff/Coroner.
With that, I am seeking your approval and vote on June 3rd.
