Truckee Town Council race shapes up for 2018
UPDATE: This article has been updated. Carolyn Wallace Dee and Patrick Flora are not running for re-election. The Sierra Sun regrets this error.
Truckee Town Council Member Morgan Goodwin will be running for re-election in November. Other candidates who filed by the Wednesday deadline include Anna Klovstad, the Truckee Elementary Project manager; David Polivy, owner of Tahoe Mountain Sports; Chelsea Walterscheid, program manager at Sierra Business Council; Suzie Tarnay, a substitue teacher at Truckee Elementary, Alder Creek Middle School and Sierra Expeditionary Learning School; Richard Ludke with the U.S. Forest Service; and Carmen Carr, Tahoe Donner real estate agent.
The town council is made up of five members who each serve four year terms. Terms are staggered between council members and elections are held every other year.
Council Members David Tirman and Jessica Abrams will hold their seats until 2020. Once candidates are voted in, the council chooses which members will serve as mayor and vice mayor the following year.
