Letter to the editor: Wilson supported for Addison-Rutland House seat
I’m supporting Barbara Wilson for district representative in Addison Rutland-1 (towns of Benson, Orwell, Shoreham and Whiting). Barb has nearly 40 years of business experience ranging from owning a small farm to working for a large national company.
The thing that impresses me most about Barb is her approach toward problem solving. Barb believes that the first step to solve a problem is to understand the problem and the issues surrounding it. Barb told me that frequently, when you learn about a problem, the solution becomes obvious. Far too many elected officials at all levels of government think that you solve a problem by spending money on it.
As tax payers and voters, we need a representative who wants to understand an issue before they spend our hard earned tax dollars. We need a representative who is analytical; one who will dig into an issue until they have the facts, one who will listen to what the voters think, and cast votes based on knowledge, not what the lobbyists or the person sitting next to her told her.
Barbara Wilson is the candidate who will put our interests first. Barb has the knowledge, ability, and desire to help lead Vermont in to the future. Join me in electing Barbara Wilson our next district representative in Benson, Orwell, Shoreham and Whiting.
