Truman O'Brien

PO BOX 973

VASHON, WA 98070

Education: BA University of Montana
Occupation: Airline Pilot (ret)

I first soloed in an airplane sixty-one years ago.  With nearly twenty-thousand hours of flight time in a variety of aircraft, I spent the last 12 years of my career as a B737 Captain for Alaska Airlines.


My public service experience on Vashon Island, includes eight years as a Park Commissioner for Vashon Park District, six years on the Board of Directors (five as President) of Vashon Community Care, Founder of Vashon Community Care Foundation, and I served on the boards of Vashon Forest Stewards and Voice of Vashon.


The Vashon Municipal Airport is a valuable community asset which will play a pivotal role in the event of a major disaster here on Vashon Island.  It is my desire to see that this asset is maintained in the safest fashion possible.
