Letter to the editor: Ripton voters’ choice deserves respect

I will be voting YES to release Ripton from the Addison Central School District.  This is not because I want to weigh in on whether Ripton School should remain open or not, nor because I want Ripton to leave, but because, as a resident of Shoreham, it is really not my business to make a decision for Ripton. The voters of Ripton have already had their say. I believe in good democratic practice and local autonomy. My YES vote will be to support Ripton’s decision and their autonomy, and, by extension, the autonomy of all towns and cities in Vermont.
