Letter to the editor: Jerome touted for House seat

In the upcoming legislative election in November, the Brandon/Sudbury/Pittsford district has a choice of two house seats from the four candidates running.
I would like to encourage everyone to vote for Stephanie Jerome. Stephanie is not only a fifth generation Vermonter; she has been someone who has made an impact on our communities in a very positive way.
Whether it be from starting and operating a new (well, it’s been 20 years) business that employs a number of people at decent wages and with health insurance benefits, or her multiple and long time volunteer efforts in our community, or her support for our schools; Stephanie has already made our towns better. Let’s look at her proven record of achievement when we decide who we want to be making decisions for us in Montpelier.
As we’ve seen from national politics, there is a culture of extremism afoot. Vermont is not necessarily immune from this trend and when we are making our decision as to whom to support it is prudent to elect someone who has demonstrated decency and a heart combined with the fiscal responsibility required of being a successful businesswoman.
There are big decisions to be made in the near future: How we operate our schools, and fund them; also what Vermont can do for the climate crisis and how to ensure that Vermonters benefit economically from the changes required. Plus, it’s obvious that our individual privacy and personal liberties are under assault, particularly those of women.
For those reasons, I am to put my trust in Stephanie Jerome, born in Vermont, educated here, and a proven job producer.
Philip Frassica
Editor’s note: The four candidates for the two seats representing Brandon, Pittsford and Sudbury are Republicans Butch Shaw and Seth Hopkins, Democrat Stephanie Jerome, and Progressive/Democrat Tim Guiles. Two candidates from each party will go on to compete in the General Election in November.
