Letter to the editor: Hardy committed to equality, inclusion fair play

Posted on November 1, 2018 |
By Lindsey Fuentes-George



Like many of us, I have felt both impatient to see Election Day 2018, and anxious about the potential outcomes. Two ideals that I thought were widely valued in our country — democracy and equality — feel threatened by powers far beyond that of my single ballot, which I will cast in a fairly small town, in a very small state. It’s been easy to feel powerless.

Letter to the editor: Voters should repudiate Republicans on Tuesday

Posted on November 1, 2018 |
By Bruce Acciavatti



We implore every registered voter to cast a vote for a Democrat or Progressive on the ballot on Nov. 6, and even if you haven’t registered to vote yet, do it now. The country’s and our state’s future depends on it. All Republicans who have not spoken out against Trump strenuously, and these are the majority of them, are his enablers. Send a strong message.

Letter to the editor: A vote for Van Wyck is a vote against the carbon tax

Posted on November 1, 2018 |
By Betsy Grant



More taxes?

The carbon tax has been supported by the Democrats for the past two legislative sessions.

The fuel dealers association has stated this legislation could add up to 89 cents a gallon for gasoline, 58 cents on propane, $1.02 to a gallon of heating oil and diesel fuel. These taxes affect every Vermonter who travels to work, use heating oil or propane to heat their homes, uses farm equipment, and adds additional cost to local deliveries of food and other supplies.

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.
