Letter to the editor: Fuentes-George earns support
Early voting is open! We are writing in support of Lindsey Fuentes-George for selectboard. Selectboard members often provide final decisions on issues related to local transportation, recreation, infrastructure, energy and utilities, housing, land use, and other crucial social and civic services and amenities. The job of a selectboard member is to have an ear to the ground and a finger on the pulse of the community. They need to be open-minded, willing to listen to all sides, have respect and patience for public participation, not be afraid to push for positive, innovative change for our community, while maintaining an eye to practicalities and priorities.
It’s a tall order, but nothing Lindsey doesn’t already handle in her everyday life.
Lindsey and her family are invested members of Middlebury. Lindsey works for Counseling Service of Addison County and is a mother of three children, two of which attend Mary Hogan Elementary School. Lindsey has the insight of everyday family life here in Middlebury and will bring an energy, outlook and curiosity to the selectboard that any community should be seeking. She (and her family) are avid supporters of the Ilsley Public Library, a vital gathering place in our downtown. She is committed to social and racial equity, fair access to public amenities and services and believes in the creative capacity of our town to set precedents for our county and our brave state.
Let’s support young families, represent their voices at the table and diversify our local government.
Claire Tebbs and Dave Hohenschau
