Letter to the editor: Cordes, Elder make very good team
There are many reasons why one should vote for both Mari Cordes and Caleb Elder and there are just as many reasons why one should vote for each of them.
As a team, they will work together to pass positive legislation that will help protect the concerns of our Addison 4 district and look for ways to help us thrive. As a team they will share in the creativity alive in our citizenry and work for legislation that will represent a new and positive spirit. Mari is and has been an activist who is willing to put herself in the line of fire to do what is right for our district and our state. She has the record and an endorsement from Bernie Sanders. Caleb is a man with a collaborative spirit who will make things happen, a man with faith in our citizen driven democracy. Together these two represent a healthy balance that represents us over party affiliations.
Mari has grown up fishing and hunting and is in touch with our Vermont way of life. She understands the importance of maintaining a healthy ecosystem. Mari is a nurse who is dedicated to improving the lives of all of us, and is keenly aware of the need for a balanced economy with fair wages. Caleb thinks strategically about our economy and climate, working in the field of solar energy, and believes there are better paths to solutions than to pit our energy concerns one against another.
We of Bristol, Lincoln, Starksboro, and Monkton could not be better represented, and it is with admiration from me, who ran against them this primary, that I ask you to support them. The State House will run better if they are in there to help.
