Letter to the editor: Jerome supported for House seat

Election season is upon us and it is time to think about how we are going to vote and what informs that decision. Party affiliation is not persuasive for us in the voting booth. Rather, we focus on the issues, the character, conduct and background of the candidates, and which person we judge has the best qualities to build relationships with colleagues to get things done. In the case of the State House seat for Brandon, Pittsford and Sudbury we support Stephanie Jerome.
Stephanie is a doer and supports her priorities with active involvement. She is the current chair of the Brandon Planning Commission and a member of the Brandon Area Chamber of Commerce and a past president of the same. She volunteered at Neshobe School and Otter Valley in various capacities. She and her husband, Brian, own and run Visual Learning Systems, a successful business for over 20 years. As a business owner she supports strong academic and technical educational opportunities for younger people to develop employable skills.
Stephanie and Brian have three college-age children so she understands the challenges working mothers face. Livable and equitable wages and affordable child-care are two of those challenges she will fight for. Stephanie is also an advocate for quality and affordable health care for all citizens including the treatment of addiction diseases and mental health illnesses.
This Rutland County native has a love for her state and the belief in small towns as places where people can build community. Stephanie has many life experiences that enrich her understanding of the challenges we all face as Vermonters, and she has the energy and passion to commit to the greater good and the wisdom to listen to and learn from others. She will be a superb representative for us in the State House.
Larry & Nancy Rowe
