This election is perhaps the most important one in which we will have a chance to vote in many years and for many years to come. The voters of the Addison-Rutland district, Benson, Orwell, Shoreham and Whiting, have an opportunity to vote for a real representative of all the people of the district. Barbara Wilson will bring a fresh voice to Montpelier.

Letter to the editor: Newton has shown caring for children, community

Posted on November 1, 2018 |
By Jackie Nienow



I first met Peter Newton as a parent when I had his daughter in 4th grade. I learned that year how important his children were to him and how much he cared about the community he worked for.

Years later, I found myself retired as an elementary teacher and wondering what to do next. I got a call from Peter. He was explaining to me a program the sheriff’s department was trying to get off the ground — helping the children of Addison County learn about and deal with bullying.

Letter to the editor: Wilson will listen carefully, make good decisions

Posted on November 1, 2018 |
By Emily Casey



Last spring, I met Barb Wilson while sitting at Carol’s Hungry Mind Café. I overheard her discussing her run for state representative and introduced myself in a casual, inquisitive way. At the time, I was a part of a team of CCV instructors bargaining our first faculty contract, heavily engaged and somewhat dismayed by the process. Do you support this, do you support that? I asked. She was friendly and direct and told me she would love to meet with me to discuss her campaign goals.

Letter to the editor: Columnist's failed attempt at satire insulted women

Posted on November 1, 2018 |
By Ashley Laux



I am fed up with misogynistic humor. I was disappointed to see this newspaper run a sexist joke about candidate Marie Audet’s looks in Greg Dennis’ column. We should demonstrate respect for women running for public office instead of amplifying harassment towards women.

Posted on November 1, 2018 |
By Naomi Ross



I write this in support of Peter Bevere for the Addison County State’s Attorney. Peter Bevere is a career prosecutor and a strong advocate for all victims of crime, especially women and children. I have known Peter for over six years and in that time, he has demonstrated a dedicated commitment to his role as a prosecutor who specializes in crimes against women and children. In addition, he has much experience in a wide range of offenses including serious felony cases involving assaults and homicide.

Letter to the editor: Members of nonprofit boards make big contributions

Posted on November 1, 2018 |
By Jessica Danyow



We live in a community that celebrates volunteerism and for this I am grateful because the unpaid labor of volunteers is the underpinning of so much of what our community has to offer.

In all of this celebration, however, I think there is a type of volunteer whose time and efforts often go unlauded and I would like to shine a spotlight on these folks and say thanks.
