Letter to the editor: Let’s keep Vermont free of nuclear bombers

On May 16th, I sent this e-mail message to Senators Hardy and Bray.
“I am a Quaker. I live in Bristol, Vermont.
I think it is very important to act on our beliefs of solving problems through negotiations and other peaceful means. I do not think that having jets with the ability to carry nuclear weapons, makes me feel safer. In fact, I think to the contrary. Be positive role models for our children, our state, our country, and our world. There are better ways to solve problems.
Thank you for your work.
Please reflect and consider supporting S.R.5, a resolution to keep Vermont nuclear bomber free.”
On May 22nd, 22 out of 30 State Senators voted “Yea” for Senate Resolution 5: the Senate of the State of Vermont expresses its strong opposition to the basing of any nuclear delivery system in the State of Vermont.
I thank Senators Hardy and Bray for reflecting and voting “Yea”.
I am also grateful that I live in a place where people can interact with their state elected officials.
If you would like to read the final text of the Resolution, please send me an e-mail [email protected].
Patricia Heather-Lea
