Opinion: Milne deserves to be elected

Dear Legislators,
Consider the possibility that Mr. Shumlin should have had some knowledge prior to his announcement that the single-payer program would be too expensive. After all, he was two years in arrears in reporting to you, the Vermont legislator.
Shumlin preyed upon the idealism of the Vermont voter. Had he been forthright and honest instead of creating false hope to get elected, there would be no need to deliberate an appointment of the governor. It is too bad that we did not have a run-off election. Were one held today, who would have had more than 50 percent?
Now is the time for each legislator to uphold the principles that voters delegate to you. We trust you to represent all Vermonters. Please put aside party affiliations, traditions, etc. Appoint Mr. Milne instead of a person who has wasted a lot of money and stolen a few votes by trampling the ideals of the voter.
Edward Payne
