Opinion: Vote for Andrew Terry for Truckee airport board
I am voting for Lisa Wallace and Andrew Terry for Airport Board. In particular, I want to tell you why Andrew is a great choice.
Andrew Terry has contributed his extensive understanding and resource to the airport for many years. As a leading member of ACAT, his attention to detail and appreciation for the complexity of problems facing the district provided the board members he served valuable insight into the multiple issues they oversee.
I had the privilege of working with him on several projects and attending noise symposiums designed to improve and enhance the airport in a variety of ways with safety being of primary importance.
Andrew understands that, while many see Truckee Tahoe Airport in terms of annoyance and nuisance, it is an asset to this community that goes far beyond flight operations.
He wants to insure that the airport remains a positive influence throughout the region with continuing community investment and open space preservation. Because he lives in a neighborhood directly affected by aircraft operations, he is committed to reducing the impact of noise and annoyance whenever possible.
While he has particular savvy in financial oversight, his skills in management and overall vision for the airport make him an ideal choice. Together with Lisa Wallace the airport district will have supportive voices for the benefit of all stakeholders.
