Big advocates of citizens expressing their right to vote, Moonshine Ink chose to bring the local elections of 2016 to our readers in new media fashion. We filmed 60-second spots from every candidate in a contested Tahoe/Truckee race, with the exception of those candidates who chose not to participate. Candidates were allowed to use the 60 seconds however they chose — but they had to stick to the time. Below, we highlight a statement from each film spot that stood out to our team. Check out the full videos and be sure to share them as well.

John Lilly

While I generally feel that the district has evolved pretty well over the years there comes a time when there should be some changes to a board that has become stale. That time can be now. In my business it’s called getting fresh eyes. Get some new perspectives. I can bring those experienced fresh eyes to the board.”


Chose not to participate:

Richard Loverde — incumbent
