Opinion: Vote for Wallace, Terry for airport board

I am writing to ask that you vote for Lisa Wallace and Andrew Terry for the Truckee Tahoe Airport Board. Wallace is current Board President. Andrew Terry is a 7-year veteran of the Airport Community Advisory Team.

We need decision makers who already have the experience and knowledge to jump right in and keep the airport responsive to the community while managing a safe and reliable facility for pilots.

I am affected by the noise of low flying aircraft over my home. Air traffic at our airport is rising at a rapid rate. This is bad news for me and my neighbors. There is more work to be done, but I feel like my calls have been heard. Thanks to the perseverance of Lisa and Andrew, voluntary curfew hours have been extended.

Wallace and Terry understand that the airport is stronger when it is responsive to the community voice and to local pilot needs. Please join me in voting Wallace and Terry for Truckee Tahoe Airport Board.
