Opinion: Experience counts when representing constituents
I firmly believe our Middlebury community is unique. We are a proud blend of business, culture, environmental concern and a wonderful willingness to make our community work for everybody. No, we do not all agree all the time and that is fine — as members of our community we will find a way.
I want our representatives to Montpelier to understand what it is to be a member of this very special Vermont community. I want our representatives to have paid property taxes; to have children, nieces, nephews, neighbors’ kids in our schools; and to have participated in our local governance. I want our representatives to have insight on what is important in the long run for the community of Middlebury and be willing to work to make it happen. These are the people I will vote for.
