District 5: Stacy Corless

Stacy Corless

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. 

My professional experience as a nonprofit leader and background in communications, earned during 15 years in the Eastern Sierra as an executive director, writer, publisher, teacher, and entrepreneur, helped me develop the right skills and good judgment required for this office—view my LinkedIn profile for more information on my background. I continued my education by earning a credential through the California State Association of Counties Institute for Excellence in Local Government.

I grew up in Lancaster, CA, making the drive up highways 14/395 for ski trips as a kid. I was drawn back to the Eastern Sierra in my twenties after earning an M.A. at UC Berkeley. Like so many locals, I came to Mammoth for a season and ended up staying and making a home here, and have lived in Mono County since then. I spend as much time as I can outside in the mountains; caring for Mono County’s beautiful public lands is a top priority for me.

About District 5

Framed by Mammoth Crest, Mammoth Rock, and the Sherwin Range, Mono County’s District 5 encompasses the southern portion of the Town of Mammoth Lakes, and is entirely within the town boundaries. The district has a beautiful mix of mountain lakes, meadows and streams, traditional “Old Mammoth” residential ambience, and areas of thriving commercial activities and growth. District 5 is a fantastic place for a hike or bike ride along the town’s multi-use paths and the trails of the Inyo National Forest.
