My Top 3 Priorities

  • Mitigating jet noise annoyance with "quiet corridors" - a game changer for homeowners - to implement ADS-B radar to re-route a significant number of planes over Hwy 267/Lake Tahoe rather than above residential areas in close proximity to the airport.
  • Providing dedicated and experienced leadership as a pilot on the five-member Truckee Tahoe Airport District board of directors. Implementing expertise of flight, airport, FAA and stakeholder complexities to continue acting on behalf of North Lake Tah
  • Being a good neighbor to all communities in the airport district, continuing to support environmental and economic efforts and upholding best practices for safety, like ways to cut down on response time for emergencies.
