Opinion: Vote for Teresa O’Dette for airport board

Editor’s note

Duane Whitelaw assured the Sierra Sun upon submitting this letter that his opinion shared here is that of himself, and not the North Tahoe Public Utility District.

I want to take a moment to tell your readers about Teresa O’Dette and her candidacy for the Truckee Tahoe District. Teresa was quick to notice the amount of property tax collected by the District and where the expenditures were made.

Obviously, the bulk of expenditures center around where the facilities and activities occur. Despite wanting things to be good nearest where the closest neighbors reside, Teresa has an eye for the big picture and what’s best for everyone who ultimately pays into property tax.

Teresa is smart, well-spoken and will be an asset serving on the District¹s Board of Directors. She understands people and can help the Airport District being run as a local asset with a regional mission. Please join me in support of Teresa O’Dette for the Airport District Board of Directors.
