Supervisor Green eyes spot on Truckee Town Council

After a four-year stint on the Nevada County Board of Supervisors, Barbara Green will run for Truckee Town Council.

Green announced her candidacy to more than 50 supporters Sunday afternoon at the Cottonwood Restaurant. Two four-year council seats will be up for grabs in November as well as a two-year term left vacant by Councilman Ted Owens, who ran unopposed for Green’s seat on the board of supervisors. Green said she will seek a four-year term that could run about $20,000 in campaign costs.

“This next town council is going to be making some important decisions for Truckee,” Green said, adding that she wants residents to ask themselves what their “view for Truckee is in the next 20 years.”

Green, a licensed Realtor, said her main goal is to preserve Truckee’s “rustic” character in the face of increasing growth. Green said she hasn’t made any real estate deals in four years and that her profession doesn’t mean she is willing to give developers free reign.

“The escalating land values we are seeing now are because of our character,” she said. “The development we approve must be consistent with Truckee’s small-town character.”
