Letter to the Editor: Desmond Elder and#8211; the right stuff

I am supporting Desmond Elder for Director of the Truckee Tahoe Airport Board. Let me tell you why.

As the owner of a plane and a pilot, he understands the need for access to and safety of the airport from a user perspective.

As a long-time community member, who happens to live in the flight path, he understands the impact, both positive and negative, that an airport can have on a community.

As a small business owner, he understands the benefits of having an alternate way for guests to visit our resort community, and the increase in services that are generated from those visits.

And as a business savvy person, he knows the necessity of an airport to be fully integrated into the infrastructure of our community, to have a strategic plan that addresses the transportation, safety and economic needs of the community, and to be a good neighbor to all.

All in all, Desmond Elder has the right stuff. I hope you join me in supporting his election to the airport board.

Nancy Gisko
