Greg Dennis: Revisiting Justice Kavanaugh and Sen. Leahy

Posted on October 11, 2018 |
By Greg Dennis



Dennis, Greg ONLINE.jpg

As Justice Brett Kavanaugh hears his first case on the Supreme Court this week, it’s worth looking back at the role played by Vermont’s longtime senator, Patrick Leahy, in his staunch opposition to confirming Kavanaugh.

No senator shined as brightly as Leahy did during the confirmation battle. The senator, now 78, has slowed down in recent years. But in his sometimes angry and ultimately convincing opposition to having Kavanaugh on the court, he showed that even aging lions can roar magnificently.

Letter to the editor: Norris deserves another term

Posted on October 11, 2018 |
By Michael and Alison Matot



We would like to encourage the voters of the Addison/Rutland District to return our Rep. Terry Norris to another term.

Terry has been an employee of the Fort Ti Ferry for nine years, after selling his farm. We were looking for an employee that we could trust and he hasn’t disappointed us.

The year that Michael was injured, Terry stepped up and made sure that every thing with the operation of the ferry went smoothly. Terry has been a resident of Shoreham since 1960 and will represent our small towns well.

By Charity Eastman



On Oct. 20, 2018, I will be walking as part of the American Foundation for Suicide Prevention’s Out of the Darkness Community Walks in Rutland to draw attention to the importance of suicide prevention. And I won’t be walking alone; I will be joined by many who share my dedication. Last year, over 550 Out of the Darkness Walks took place in communities and campuses across the United States, attended by a quarter of a million dedicated people who share my passion. Our movement is growing.

Letter to the editor: Ralston missed 44 roll call votes

Posted on October 11, 2018 |
By Steve Maier



I have concerns about Paul Ralston’s record as a legislator. He was absent for 44 roll call votes during his time in the House between 2011 and 2014. As a former legislator, I know how important and yet also how basic it is to vote on bills that come forward, to show up and be counted. I don’t think you can be an effective legislator and miss that many votes. Among the votes that he missed were important ones on early childhood education and reducing energy costs, two issues that he now highlights in his campaign ads.

Letter to the editor: Bevere earns endorsement in race for state's attorney

Posted on October 11, 2018 |
By John Waszak



I write to urge you to vote for Peter Bevere to be the next State’s Attorney for Addison County. After I served as a prosecutor in New York City for nearly nine formative years, my family and I moved to Vermont, and until recently, we spent much of the last three years living in Middlebury. I had the pleasure of knowing Peter professionally and personally while working in Rutland together. Peter is a capable and experienced prosecutor, a man of decency and integrity, and a person with a demonstrated commitment to both Middlebury and Addison County.

Letter to the editor: Audet, Ralston are free of political party pressures

Posted on October 11, 2018 |
By Nick Artim



Since the time when Marie Audet and Paul Ralston announced their candidacy for the Vermont Senate I have been trying to figure out exactly what I should put into a letter of endorsement. Then a recent letter to the Addison Independent editor titled “Independents stand for what?” provided me with the answer that I was looking for and why I believe that Marie and Paul represent the best choice for Addison County.
