My name is Suzanne Boyle. I am retired now and have Medicare plus a Supplemental Health Insurance Plan — USAA, a nonprofit healthcare plan. However, it wasn’t always this simple.
I have known and worked closely with Mike Fisher for a number of years. He has my vote because he is hardworking, trustworthy and has the best Vermont values.
There are candidates out there who believe that the way to get elected is to promote fear and attack the integrity of their opponents. This is not the Bristol, Lincoln, Monkton or Starksboro way of gaining support.
We live in a comfortable, friendly and very interesting place and, this November, we are fortunate in having four competent candidates compete for two seats to represent our district in the Vermont House of Representatives.
I plan on voting for Mike Fisher for one of these seats, to continue in helping him in his strong work of helping us govern ourselves, and hope you, too, will consider voting to return him to this important work.
I am very proud to endorse Amy Sheldon for election to the state Legislature. I have urged Amy for years to run for office and I am delighted that she is taking the plunge. Montpelier sorely needs good people like Amy. Few can match Amy’s breadth of experience, her intelligence, her knowledge of the issues or her ability to get things done.
I am writing this letter to recommend the election of Alyson Eastman of Orwell running to represent Vermonters. Alyson has been involved in town issues for many years. She served on the Orwell School board. She understands the methods and means to develop a small business, having operated a bookkeeping payroll business, even extending to immigration services, and negotiating contracts.
Rep. Diane Lanpher deserves to be reelected to represent us in Montpelier. She has proven that not only does she listen to our concerns in our community, she acts on them.
CASTLETON — For most of Monday’s Division II field hockey semifinal, No. 2 Otter Valley Union High School looked like the better team even without leading scorer Allison Lowell, who took ill just as the Otters were boarding their bus to leave for Castleton State College.
THETFORD — The Middlebury Union High School boys’ cross-country team finished fifth in Division II to highlight the efforts of runners from MUHS, Mount Abraham, Vergennes and Otter Valley at Saturday’s Vermont championship meet at Thetford Academy.
