Dear residents of District #1,
My name is Larry Johnston and I am seeking re-election for a second term on the Mono County Board of Supervisors, representing District #1 in the heart of Mammoth Lakes.
I stand for frugal and efficient government, creative thinking, and rational decision-making. During the past three years I have helped lead efforts to eliminate overgenerous management benefits, to halt the nearly $1 million per year drain on the Solid Waste Enterprise Fund, to create a Construction Stimulus Plan and to abolish the ill-conceived Development Impact Fee (DIF) program, among other initiatives. Through my participation on the local Air Board, over $80,000 has been provided directly to the Town for updating its Air Quality plan. And, to allow for greater input to County government, I have championed permanently establishing 1/3 of the Supervisors’ meetings here in Mammoth Lakes.
I will continue to be a strong advocate for regional tourism and diversification of our economy with environmentally compatible enterprises. Additionally, I support funding for regional air service, various special events – including the fireworks program, youth and cultural activities, and collaborative opportunities with the Town. I also will continue to encourage well-planned workforce housing.
It is my sincere intention to seek additional efficiencies in all areas of government and look forward to your ideas on how to serve you better. I truly believe that citizens want to be proud of their government and I will always strive to move toward that goal.

Larry K. Johnston
Supervisor, District #1
