Opinion: In support of Sheldon, Nuovo

I urge Middlebury voters to nominate Amy Sheldon and Betty Nuovo for the town’s two House seats in the Vermont Legislature.
Ms. Sheldon, a 25-year Middlebury resident and Middlebury College and UVM alumna, is superbly qualified to join Mrs. Nuovo, whose long and dedicated service speaks for itself, representing our town in Montpelier.
Both Amy Sheldon and Betty Nuovo are endorsed by the Vermont League of Conservation voters — a very important recommendation. Amy’s experience as the Middlebury Area Land Trust’s first executive director, an active alternate with the District 9 Environmental Commission, a 10-year member of the Middlebury Planning Commission and the founder of the Trail Around Middlebury (TAM) makes her a strong and knowledgeable advocate for the environment and conservation.
Amy, like Betty, considers health care a human right and is firmly committed to Vermont’s transition to a single-payer system, which will guarantee affordable care for all, regardless of age, employment or income. Funding for single-payer will be one of the most complicated and contentious issues facing legislators in the coming session. We need courageous, determined, well-informed representatives to see the process through — people like Amy and Betty, along with Addison County’s other excellent House members Dave Sharpe, Michael Fischer, Willem Jewett and Diane Lanpher.
The Aug. 26 primary is especially critical this year since there is a three-way Democratic race for the party’s two nominations. Please get acquainted with Amy Sheldon and her outstanding qualifications and nominate her and Betty Nuovo to represent Middlebury.
