Letter to the editor: Wilson listens well, works hard
I am writing to support Barbara Wilson’s campaign to be our new representative in Montpelier, representing Benson, Orwell, Shoreham and Whiting.
Barb has been going door-to-door since July, in all four towns, meeting with people one on one and listening to their concerns. She is a thoughtful listener, with an open mind combined with a background in business and budgeting.
In her work last year in favor of universal primary health care, she attended many legislative sessions in Montpelier, learning a great deal about this and related “safety net” topics.
She is non-ideological and facts-based in her approach to problem-solving. She brings a commitment to Vermont-based solutions such as increased apprentice and training programs for the skilled trades. She supports investments in our infrastructure and family health, to make a decent standard of living available to all.
I think she will be an active, open-minded and hard-working advocate for the variety of people living in our four towns, and I am proud to be supporting her.
