Opinion: House governor candidates have proven their worth
I am writing in support of Amy Sheldon and Robin Scheu who are running in the Vermont Democratic primary for state representative in the two seats representing Middlebury. Amy is an incumbent, just finishing her first term as state representative. She has done exceedingly well and has won high respect from her colleagues and state officials. She deserves to be returned. Her expertise in water resources is especially valuable, but in all other respects, she is well informed, energetic, open and fair minded, and can be counted on to do the right thing. And she cares very deeply for the welfare for the town and the state.
I can say the same for Robin Scheu, who, though if elected, would be new to the Legislature, is a long-term resident, prominent in the business community and a leader in key local non-profits. In her current position as executive director of the Addison County Economical Development Corporation, she has been successful in sustaining local businesses and assisting in the creation of new ones, and in job creation. She would bring all this knowledge and her skills to the Legislature.
Finally, I write in support of Sue Minter for governor of Vermont. She has proven herself as a public servant who cares deeply for the welfare of the people, for working families, for the creation of a strong work force through free post-secondary education. She is smart, strong, dedicated, experienced, and energetic.
So there we are, three good women for a better Vermont!
