Letter to the editor: Sharpe, Cordes on the right side of crucial issues

Posted on October 27, 2016 |
By Bruce Acciavatti



I am supporting Dave Sharpe for re-election and Mari Cordes in the Addison 4 District race for the Vermont House. They are the most qualified candidates to carry our state forward in supporting renewable energy projects, protecting our environment, providing healthcare for all, quality education for our schoolchildren, bringing the kind of well-paying jobs that we need, and promoting recreation and tourism opportunities for visitors and residents — a main driver of our economy.

Letter to the editor: Milne can provide new leadership in U.S. Senate

Posted on October 27, 2016 |
By Tom Hughes



Worn-out Pat Leahy is approaching the finish line for another six-year term in the U.S. Senate. He won in 1974, 1980, 1986, 1992, 1998, 2004 and 2010. He has clung to that job for seven terms, for 42 human years, or 294 “dog years.” Enough!

Leahy has proven to be as bitterly partisan as they come, which only contributes to the federal gridlock problem. Pat lives in a Washington, D.C. suburb most of the year — except for election season when he tries to still appear as a Vermonter.

Letter to the editor: Public 'Service' or Public 'Utility' Department?

Posted on October 27, 2016 |
By Mary Martin



I am writing as a member of “Just Power.” Just power does not mean just as in simply power. It stands for just as in justice — to be treated fairly and equally with a meaningful involvement. Almost four years ago, I believed in justice. I was told the Public Service Board (PSB) would hear us and then decide if they should grant a Certificate of Public Good (CPG) for Vermont Gas based on existing criteria…such as need, reliability and economic benefit.
