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.

Editorial: Do this exercise to help you choose the best candidate

Posted on October 25, 2018 |
By Angelo Lynn



As voters contemplate which candidates to support in the General Election on Nov. 6, we want to first thank all candidates in Addison County races for answering our series of questions for publication. It’s not easy boiling down one’s thoughts to a 350-to-500-word answer on complicated questions (for state Senate candidates) or 100-word answers on seven questions for House candidates. That effort — on their part and ours — is all to provide our readers and prospective voters with a firm foundation from which to make a more educated decision.

UPDATED: Greg Dennis: 'Trump' weighs in on county elections

Posted on October 25, 2018 |
By Greg Dennis



Dennis, Greg ONLINE.jpg

UPDATED:

With the election less than two weeks away, I sat down recently with President Donald Trump for another of our intermittent (and imaginary) political “discussions.”

GD: Mr. President, I understand you’ve taken a surprising amount of interest in the Addison County State Senate race. Why is that?

DT: You’ve got this guy Paul Ralston in the race. He’s a lot like me.

GD: How so?

DT: Well, he saw the light. He used to be a Democrat and now he’s a Republican.
