Letter to the editor: Baser has made positive impact

Posted on October 20, 2016 |
By Frank Buonincontro



Two years ago I wrote a letter regarding Fred Baser and his running for representative. I made three points:

1. Fred is my brother-in-law

2. I like Fred in spite of that… and

3. I believed he would do an outstanding job representing his constituents.

Well two years later, Fred is still my brother-in-law, I still like him and by any yardstick Fred has had a positive impact in the Legislature.

By Nilene Farnsworth



I’m writing in support of the re-election of Fred Baser to the Vermont House of Representatives. I have known Fred for a long time, and I consider him a trustworthy, honest, hard-working person.

He has served our town of Bristol and the county on numerous committees. He understands the economic challenges that face all of Vermont, whether it is to attract jobs to our area, retaining jobs in Vermont, affordable housing and the over taxation.

By Michael Fisher



On Nov. 8, voters in the five towns of Addison northeast will face an unusual and important ballot item. No I am not talking about the presidential race which is indeed as unusual as it gets this year. I am talking about the school consolidation ballot that is brought to you by the ANeSU Act 46 Study Committee. This proposal represents a significant change in how we govern one of the most important community organizations in our towns, our schools.

Posted on October 20, 2016 |
By Anna Rose and John Benson



We are writing in support of Taborri Bruhl for state representative in New Haven, Bridport and Weybridge. What first impressed us about Taborri when he came to our house is that he didn’t talk about himself, but wanted to learn about us, our worries and our ideas.

The environment and energy, economic justice, kids and education, farming and land conservation: he’s got goodwill, curiosity and the intelligence to work for what’s best for all of us.

Letter to the editor: Scheu viewed as strategic thinker, problem solver

Posted on October 20, 2016 |
By Johanna Nichols



By now, you know about the many ways Robin Scheu has served and continues to serve the Middlebury community. I want to speak to why I supported Robin from the moment she announced her campaign to represent Middlebury residents in the legislature, driving her around as she went door-to-door in the heat of August.

I have known Robin for sixteen years. My experience with her has been when she works with groups who are trying to create a vision and mission, trying to develop a strategy, to set goals and to accomplish something in community.

Letter to the editor: Democratic, Progressive candidates the best choices

Posted on October 20, 2016 |
By Judy and Michael Olinick



Thank you for your thoughtful comparison of our two main gubernatorial candidates. We agree that Sue Minter is the only choice if the state is to make reasonable progress in a wide range of critical areas. We urge our fellow citizens to elect her, understanding that she will need strong support but also considerable direction and pushing from a socially-committed Democratic-Progressive Legislature.

By Sandra Crossman



As a resident of Addison County for several years I feel strongly about endorsing Ron Holmes. He has lived most of his life in Addison County and has a strong commitment to this community. His experience in law enforcement goes back decades to when he was a Deputy Sheriff for 25 years.
