Letter to the editor: Jerome offers strong experience
I am so happy to be able to cast a vote this November for Stephanie Jerome. I have known Stephanie and her husband for nearly 20 years now and cannot think of a better person to work for us in Montpelier.
Stephanie grew up in Rutland County attending local schools and UVM. When she and her husband, Brian, decided to raise a family they chose Brandon because of the strong sense of community they saw there and because of the local schools. Stephanie Jerome is a strong supporter of our local schools, which she believes are the bedrock of our community.
The Jeromes started a successful business in town producing science education videos. They bought and improved a rundown commercial property in town to house their business. A few years later they bought another empty commercial building nearby and improved it. Stephanie has firsthand experience developing commercial properties. In addition she has employed local citizens, including my own son when he was in high school. Stephanie Jerome knows what it means to make a payroll as well as to start and build a business.
Stephanie understands the challenges of balancing work with raising a family and knows the importance of affordable childcare and health care. She will be a strong advocate for young families working hard to make ends meet.
Stephanie Jerome is experienced and energetic. She has volunteered on various boards including the Brandon Chamber of Commerce, the Brandon Economic Development Committee and the Brandon Planning Commission. Stephanie will be a strong voice for our towns, our businesses, our schools, our people and our families. Please join me in voting for her as our representative in Montpelier.
