Candidate Statements


I have served on the CATT Board of Directors for over 12 years and am happy to continue serving the Contractors Association. I am on a couple of the most important committees, the Christmas Holiday Party Committee and the Annual Budget Committee. The Christmas Holiday Party raises the most revenue for the association of any activity it sponsors and the evening in Reno is a highlight of the Christmas Holiday Season. Over the 12 years I have been helping with the party we have raised well over a quarter million dollars for the association. I also contribute my 40 years of business experience to the CATT Budget Committee. I am pleased to say that the Association is financially healthy.

Our Association is administrated by a very qualified staff of professionals, but they cannot get the job done without lots of volunteers. Volunteers are a very necessary part of the association. I enjoy the group of professional contractors I get to work with on the CATT Committees and will continue to volunteer as required if reelected. Remember the work that needs to be done to keep our members benefiting from CATT is done by those who show up and help. Thank you for your vote.


I would like to ask for your vote to elect me as a member of the CATT Board of Directors. Truckee, CATT and the community at large have treated me well in my time here and I feel compelled to participate toward our mutual success.

As a building and real estate professional I am in tune with the needs of the membership and am well versed in the issues we face.  As a graduate of both the Truckee/North Lake Tahoe Leadership Program and the NAIOP Developing Leaders Institute, I have the experience necessary for this role and am ready to roll up my sleeves and get to work.

I thank you for this opportunity and respectfully ask for your vote.


CATT is the most dynamic and influential organization in the Truckee/Lake Tahoe area and I am proud to have been a member for the past 15 years.  I have served as CATTPAC Vice-Chairman for 8 years, member of the Housing Committee for 2 years and as your Board President for the past year. In a successful effort to convince the Placer County Board of Supervisors to fund a Permit Process Manager position, Pat Davison and I had individual meetings with every Supervisor.  I have represented CATT at Placer County Supervisors, Truckee Town Council, Planning Commission and PUD Board meetings.  It would be an honor to continue to represent hard working CATT members for the next 3 years.  Thank you.


I am presently an incumbent board member of CATT representing the North/West Shore areas of Lake Tahoe.  I have been on the board since its inception and more recently, served as President in 2009 and Chairman in 2010.  I am very proud of the accomplishments, growth, and community services that CATT has achieved through the direction of my fellow board members.  I would look forward to continuing my association with the CATT board as one of the “elder statesmen.”


I have been an electrician for 25 years and established my business in 2006. I joined CATT hoping that I would obtain business from its members and contacted many to introduce myself. One member said, “You’re doing the right thing being proactive, and not just waiting for the phone to ring.” 

When board members prompted me to get involved, I asked “where am I needed?” Thus began my learning experience with CATT. I have been an active volunteer for the Christmas Holiday Party.  Over the years I have served as Secretary, Vice President, President, and Past President of the Board of Directors.

I believe in the spirit of rotation. Some board members have diligently contributed to our organization for years. They are an amazing asset. My continued service will bring valuable knowledge to newer board members as other board members take some time off.

Most of all I believe that service to CATT is a privilege, an honor, and inspiring!  My experience, positive attitude, enthusiasm, and open mind are a valuable asset to the CATT Board. Please support me with your vote and you’ll experience a continued strength in CATT.


My name is Anton “Toni” Standteiner.  I am the owner of the Mountain Forge blacksmith shop here in Truckee.  My Austrian father, Hans, started the shop in 1968.  I have a degree in Architecture and a Masters Certification in Blacksmithing.  I'm a firm believer in the CATT organization and their mission statement.  My company actively engages in community projects and outreach programs and I look forward to continuing this tradition with CATT.  Strike while the irons hot!  Thank you for your time.
