Opinion: Mullin sign criticism off target, but donations questioned
I want to apologize to Valerie Mullin and to the voters of Addison County. I wrongly said that Valerie did not demonstrate Vermont values by having her personal political lawn signs at the most recent youth soccer event at Mount Abe. I’ve been informed that her level of donation to the youth sports program allowed her to put up her signs at the event. I did not check the facts before writing my letter and for that I apologize to all.
However, I still stand by my belief that Vermont Values do not support a candidate from taking large political donations from out-of-the-district individuals or companies as Valerie did from “Skip” Vallee. This fact of donations can be fact checked by everyone at the Vermont Secretary of State office website, www.sec.state.vt.us/media/579397/Mullin-Valerie-922014-Rep.pdf.
