Opinion: Nuovo, Sheldon would make great legislative team

There are many reasons to support Betty Nuovo and Amy Sheldon in the coming election for state representative from Middlebury. One reason is that both Nuovo and Sheldon have already demonstrated their commitment to the town of Middlebury through their many constructive contributions over the last two decades.
Rep. Nuovo has already represented our town well in the Legislature, chaired the Judiciary Committee, sponsored the Equal Rights Amendment, and worked on minimum wage, hate crime and same-sex marriage legislation. She has contributed as a member of the Natural Resources Committee to legislation on recycling, renewable energy and energy efficiency. This is just a very short list of her legislative accomplishments.
Throughout, she has also continued to contribute to the town of Middlebury, previously serving as a member of the selectboard, board member of the Middlebury Natural Foods Co-op, and member of the Addison County Chamber of Commerce, Regional Planning Commission and Economic Development Commission.
Amy Sheldon has also shown her devotion to our town through her involvement in many activities that have improved life here for all of us. She is the founder of the Trail Around Middlebury, a wonderful resource that outdoor enthusiasts of all ages have been able to use in order to take advantage of the town’s natural surroundings. Sheldon also served for a decade on the Middlebury Planning Commission, and was also a District 9 Act 250 commissioner for many years. Her knowledge about and dedication to our town has already been demonstrated through these and numerous other activities.
Nuovo and Sheldon have proven their commitment to our town through many years of service. They deserve our support in the upcoming election on Nov. 4.
