Letter to the editor: Wilson offers bipartisan voice

Posted on October 29, 2018 |
By Norton Latourelle



I’m voting for Barb Wilson for state representative of the towns of Shoreham, Orwell, Whiting and Benson. I’m voting for Barb Wilson because she is for healthcare, childcare, job training and a sustainable wage, all of which will make our state more competitive, keep our youth here and create a growing economy that reduces our tax burden without cutting vital services.

Letter to the editor: Audet and Ralston will stand up for rural communities

Posted on October 29, 2018 |
By Brian Kemp



As a farmer in Addison County I would like to express my support for Independents Marie Audet and Paul Ralston. I believe electing them to the Vermont Senate will be a positive change for Addison County. With Marie’s agricultural background she will bring a boots on the ground perspective to the ever-changing farming landscape. Addison County needs a strong voice in Montpelier advocating for Ag, something that has been missing for some years.

Posted on October 29, 2018 |
By Louis duPont



As we consider who to vote for in the upcoming midterm election, it is important as always to assess the character and experience of individual candidates. It is also critically important, especially in this election, to try to understand what our two main political parties stand for right now. What vision for the future of the country are each of the parties advancing?

Here are some of the things that the current Republican Party stands for, as shown by their actions in Washington and in Republican controlled statehouses:

Stephanie Jerome is running for state representative in the two-person district that encompasses the towns of Brandon, Pittsford and Sudbury. She is a great candidate and I hope you will support her.

Letter to the editor: Bray, Hardy will work hard and find the right answers

Posted on October 29, 2018 |
By Jason M. Duquette-Hoffman



It may be a crowded field, but the choice for who to send to the Vermont Senate this November is simple. All you need to do is ask one basic question:

Who do you think will work the hardest for all of us?

Not just for farmers alone, or townsfolk alone, or businesses alone, or teachers alone, or retirees alone, or workers alone. For all of us, together.

Letter to the editor: Hardy committed to the community

Posted on October 29, 2018 |
By Naomi Smith



Ruth Hardy is a strong candidate for the Vermont Senate.

Ruth’s commitment to community is clear from the roles she has taken in our community over the past 16 years. She is a strong advocate for women leaders in politics as evidenced in her role as the executive director of Emerge. I can think of no other person that would bring the skills, energy and strength to this position. I will be voting for Ruth on Nov. 6.

You know who I’m really sick of?

Heather.

Heather from Card Services. She calls a lot.

I’ve never heard Heather’s spiel because I hang up as soon as her cheerful voice pops into my ear. I know Heather’s not real, because she sounds exactly the same every time she calls, and because people who work for real credit card companies don’t typically act like you’re the best thing to happen to them all day.
