Thank you to the voters for giving me the opportunity to serve as a director on the Truckee Tahoe Airport Board for the past 12 years. Although I am not running for re-election, I am helping to campaign for Lisa Wallace and Andrew Terry.

I have worked with Lisa on the Airport Board for the past four years, and I have seen Andrew participate as a member of the Airport Community Advisory Team for over seven years while he also regularly attended board meetings for 12 years. They are non-pilots who are leaders in our communities working on projects related to watershed protection to trails to the Community House in Kings Beach. They are involved, they listen, they offer good insights to issues, they work for solutions, and they are willing to be seen and take a stand. These are important attributes that will serve ALL of us.

These candidates are informed on the many issues facing the airport and they care about the future of our regional communities. I am asking you to join me in voting for them as I believe they will continue to provide needed balance on the board.

As there are three open seats, I also support Rick Stephens for the third spot.
