Opinion: New choices better for board
As town meeting approaches next week, it is exciting to have new choices in the selectboard candidates. It is wonderful to have new people interested in serving the citizens of Middlebury. Heather Seeley and Dick Terk offer new energy and expertise with open minds and support of transparency and accessibility in government. I hope you will join me in supporting them in their offer to work for our community.
Dick is a longtime resident and has served Middlebury well in his many earlier years on the town planning commission and Addison County Regional Planning Commission. His work as an engineer and in project management would be a huge asset for the town in light of the projects coming soon to our downtown. I appreciate his thoughtfulness and listening ear about town issues.
Heather has many connections to our community through the two small businesses she runs with her husband, the schools and above all her active participation in town committees. Heather serves on the Public Works Committee, is an alternate to the Development Review Board and in recent years has been a regular attendee at the selectboard meetings. She understands our town and how it works and would be a dedicated and openminded addition to the selectboard. It is my hope we will have new voices on our selectboard.
