Letter to the editor: Ilsley board candidate urges voting for her opponent

I am writing to recommend Joe McVeigh for Ilsley library trustee. You will see my name on the ballot as an incumbent for that same position. Due to some new responsibilities and challenges  that have come up in my life, and because I have witnessed Joe’s dedication as he has attended almost every library board meeting since I was elected, I believe that Joe would serve the public better than I would as library trustee.
I’ve seen that Joe McVeigh is hard working. He takes the minutes at our meetings, works on several committees, and is sensitive to the needs of others. He responds well to critique. He often raises the concerns of others up so they don’t get lost in the discussion and helps the discussion move productively.
Middlebury voters can vote on  March 5th at the town offices, or vote early by absentee ballot. For the two library trustees I recommend Joe McVeigh and Catherine Nichols. And remember as our library grows and changes the public is welcome to comment at our monthly board meetings, and there are often opportunities to help the board in other ways.
