Opinion: Vote for Wallace, Terry for airport board

Our Truckee Tahoe Airport is an important and vital regional asset. It is important for it to continue to evolve as a facility, in order to serve the community’s expanding aviation needs. At the same time, as the airport use grows, this necessitates a balance, mitigation and finding solutions to an increase in noise and impacts to our community.

We have a duty to first and foremost protect the mountain town quality of life we all cherish. The airport has been a long part of the Truckee community. Balancing the needs of aviation and at the same time minimizing or solving the negative impacts to the community is complicated.

Lisa Wallace and Andrew Terry both know these issues, and have experience with the Airport as well the proven commitment to work hard to seek innovative solutions and make it work right. For the Truckee Tahoe Airport Board, I am asking you to please vote for Wallace and Terry.
