I went to the forum on Oct. 10 at the high school and was enthused by what I saw. There was no doubt in mind that Austin Sass is the man for the job. He was knowledgeable, articulate, energetic and creative with new fresh ideas. I was also impressed by his extensive business and tourism background and his love of the outdoors. I understand he and his wife have lived in Tahoe for over 30 years and are very much involved in our community. I think this guy would do a great job because he has a sincere passion for Tahoe and wants to see us thrive and prosper.
