Letter to the editor: All Vermonters served well by Sen. Bray
I have worked with Chris Bray as my fellow chair of Natural Resources Committee for six years, he in the Senate and I in the House. I have found him cooperative, balanced, knowledgeable, and a strong supporter of a clean environment. He respects using a transparent process for deciding public policy about natural resource issues. When, for example, the new rules for agricultural water (RAPs) quality were written, Chris chose an approach that ensured that farmers themselves were at the table as the guidelines were written.
Chris also recognizes that our natural environment is not one to be “locked up,” but rather one that should be used and enjoyed, contributing to a healthy rural economy. His work over the last decade embodies the belief that a healthy economy and a healthy environment can, and must, go hand-in-hand.
Perhaps most importantly, Chris is the embodiment of a sound citizen legislator in that those of us who serve know we could not possibly know everything, but the good ones are willing to take the time and make the effort to learn what we do not know. Chris is one of the good ones. Based on my experience with him, the environment, and all Vermonters, will be well served with his reelection.
