Opinion: Sheldon and Nuovo deserve your vote in November
If you have not voted already, when you consider how to use your two votes for our Middlebury representatives to Montpelier, I ask you to consider voting for Amy Sheldon and Betty Nuovo.
I have known Amy for all the years since she was executive director of the Middlebury Area Land Trust. It was her initiative and care for our community then that both founded our commitment to conserve our working landscape and brought the Trail Around Middlebury (TAM) into being — one of our best assets.
Twenty-five years or so later, it is still her initiative and her strong commitment to and a deep understanding of our unique, diverse community that she brings to all she has done for Middlebury. She brought great expertise and insights to the planning commission with her years of service on that board.
She is well informed and has thorough understanding of the issues we face in health care, property taxes and energy as well as the health of our natural resources. As a small business owner she understands the value of a locally owned diverse economy. Amy engages with people openly and listens to their ideas and concerns. She is so much a member of our community.
I want Amy to represent us in Montpelier because I know firsthand that she will work incredibly hard and thoughtfully for good solutions for our future.
Betty Nuovo is already well known to us having served for so many years as our representative. I know she is committed our town and gives her work there full attention. Her depth of experience in state government is an asset for us.
