Tahoe elections are Tuesday

The future makeup of the decision-making boards of the South Tahoe Public Utility District and Lake Tahoe Unified School District will be decided Tuesday.

It will be election day in El Dorado County.

Twelve people are vying for three seats on the school board, and one of three candidates will fill STPUD’s seat No. 3.

The incumbents for the school board race are David Kurtzman, who has served since 1983, and Eric Schafer, a member since 1987. Linda Mendizabal, who served on the board since 1989, is not running. The challengers are John Hash, Lennie Schwartz, Dan Sullivan, Lori London, Sue Novasel, Bernadette Santana, Jonnie Crawford, Nick Carrell, Sue Yang and Manuel Jimenez.

The top three vote getters will win the election.

STPUD incumbent Mary Lou Mosbacher has served on the board for nine years. She has two challengers: Mark Witters and Joyce Blackstone. Witters has publicly said he is out of the race and has thrown his support to Blackstone. His name, however, will still appear on the ballot.

STPUD seat No. 4 had been up for election, but incumbent Duane Wallace is unopposed and will fill the position.

For information about where to vote, residents can call the El Dorado County Recorder-Clerk’s Office at (530) 621-7490.
