Letter to the editor: Wilson supported for Addison-Rutland House seat

It is with great pleasure that we are supporting Barbara Wilson for State Representative for Addison-Rutland 1 District (Benson. Orwell, Shoreham and Whiting). As a retired business professional and now a small business owner, Barb knows first hand the struggles and hardships of living in rural Vermont.
Barb grew up on a dairy farm in the Midwest with family that realized what a hard day’s work was all about. She took that work ethic in to the business world as an adult and for over 35 years worked for a large telecommunications company assessing and transforming complex customer needs into network management software solutions. She rose to the top in her profession. Presently, she owns and operates a small berry/fruit farm in Shoreham, where she makes and sells her products at farmer’s markets throughout the area.
When asked what she sees as most important for Vermont and her district, the first thing Barb talks about is affordable healthcare for all Vermonters as well as affordable post-high school education and tech training so that we can keep our youth here in the state where there are jobs for them. Barb says that creating good paying jobs here is the key, and creating an economy that supports our farms, small businesses and working people is what the future needs.
Another need for our area is dependable, affordable and convenient childcare along with early childhood education for our families. Barb is committed to protecting our rural landscape, as well as clean water and she will work hard to support our farming community.
Barb will be a full time legislator and will be accountable and accessible to the people she serves. She will ask for your input before taking a position when needed and to do her homework so that she will understand each and every piece of legislation before her. She will keep us informed and up to date on the workings of Montpelier. She is someone you can trust with your vote.
The time is right for change!
Rick and Barb Buxton, Orwell
