FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

Pat Foster Joins the Mammoth Lakes Tourism Board of Directors

Mammoth Lakes, Calif. (July 13, 2020) — At its July 1 meeting the Mammoth Lakes Tourism Board of Directors appointed Pat Foster to the At-Large seat available on the board.

Born in Bridgeport, Foster has been a lifelong resident of the Eastern Sierra, having lived in June Lake and Bishop for most of his life. He is the President of Hot Creek Aviation at the Mammoth Yosemite Airport where he has spent the last 21 years providing General Aviation Services and working alongside the town’s air service partners.

“Mammoth Lakes Tourism has done some amazing work over the last several years and I am excited to join its efforts,” Foster said. “We find ourselves in unprecedented and challenging times right now – I am hoping I can contribute to a responsible recovery.”

The role of the At-Large Board seat is to provide guidance from the larger business community in Mammoth Lakes. It is meant to bring a perspective beyond the other represented groups of lodging, restaurant and retail.

“As a lifelong Eastern Sierra resident, and President of Hot Creek Aviation, Pat Foster brings a unique perspective on our community to the MLT Board of Directors,” said Board President, John Morris. “We look forward to his input and wisdom regarding the pending expansion of air service to Bishop Airport and other key strategic initiatives.”
