Letter to the editor: Audet and Ralston will stand up for rural communities
As a farmer in Addison County I would like to express my support for Independents Marie Audet and Paul Ralston. I believe electing them to the Vermont Senate will be a positive change for Addison County. With Marie’s agricultural background she will bring a boots on the ground perspective to the ever-changing farming landscape. Addison County needs a strong voice in Montpelier advocating for Ag, something that has been missing for some years.
As a farm owner she understands the challenges and tribulations of surviving in today’s culture. So much has changed in the last five years, protecting our environment and waters has become one of the most important topics in Ag today, while trying to remain sustainable in doing so. Marie will be a positive voice in Montpelier for Ag, the environment and rural economy.
Paul also brings a common sense approach to the table. As a small businessman himself, he understands the issues in Vermont’s rural economy. He is a strong collaborator a good listener and is willing to work with others to solve issues. These attributes will make him a great senator for Vermont.
Audet and Ralston will stand up for our rural communities and work for the voters.
