Letter to the editor: Scott is fine, but GOP is not

What’s not to like about Governor Phil Scott — he’s doing a good job with the pandemic, he watches the budget, and he drives a stock car. I like these things as a Vermonter who grew up within earshot of Thunder Road (I still remember Ronnie Marvin’s number 13,) but I’m not going to vote for Phil Scott. Why? He belongs to the Republican party and I’ve voted for Republicans many times, but those were different times. That Republican party would never sue the state of Vermont to keep us from voting by mail. Voter fraud? Give me a break — our town clerks and postal workers are good honest people.
Scott can disagree with stuff like this, but you cannot go against your party. I remember Jim Jeffords (voted for him) trying to stand up for Vermont — didn’t work — and that was when the Republican party was not what it is today.
I have no complaints with Phil Scott, but I do not want today’s Republicans running the show. I am voting for David Zuckerman and hope you will too.
