Thank you for this opportunity to write in support of the Early Childhood Educators of Vermont. Our state is fortunate to have a network of agencies, homes and private centers that provide care, nurturing and education to the state’s youngest citizens. The persons who work with our children in these settings are mostly women, and though the work they do is arguably the most important work done in our state, they typically are not well-paid, minimum wage being the standard for these jobs.

BRISTOL — Bristol resident and former Marine John Shepard had always hoped to take his daughter Natasha, 13, to visit the North Carolina coast, the territory he loved when he served in the U.S. Marine Corps in the 1980s.
According to Shepard’s ex-wife and still good friend Marion Martin, a Mineville, N.Y., resident, John and Natasha planned to go this coming November.
But that was before Shepard’s health took a dramatic turn for the worse.
“He won’t make it. He’s fading fast every day,” Martin said.
