Letter to the Editor: Vote Jellinek for airport board

Previously, I have not been in a position where I was able to endorse a candidate for the Truckee Tahoe Airport Board, as I was the airport’s General Manager. Now that I’m retired, I find myself in position where I can share my endorsement with the public.

During my nearly nine years of serving this community as your Airport District GM, I made more than a few observations regarding Board and their governance.

First, it’s been my observation that, the very best Board members I had the privilege to work for were the ones who came to the position out of a sense of duty to serve their community. The worst board members were the ones who came to the position with their own agenda and preconceived ideas which seemed at times to only be self-serving.

After reading and hearing a lot of different opinions regarding the current candidates running for election to the Truckee Tahoe Airport District Board of Directors, I would strongly endorse Greg Jellinek M.D. for the Truckee Tahoe Airport Board.

I’ve known Dr. Jellinek for over thirty years and have found him to not only being very committed to his community, but extremely thoughtful and knowledgeable. Of all those currently running for the three available seats on the Airport Board Dr. Jellinek is the only one with extensive real world experience in both aviation and business.

Greg is the only one of the four candidates not running on a coalition ticket, but is an independent community member who has heard the call to serve his community.
