Letter to the editor: Hardy, Bray have best backgrounds

Posted on October 15, 2018 |
By Ellen Oxfeld



We have a very competitive race for State Senate in Addison County, and this will give our voters a chance to weigh many different approaches to how our state government can best advance the public good.

Two candidates — Ruth Hardy and Chris Bray — stand out from the field. In my opinion, they are the best choice for Addison County. They have both the necessary skill sets as well as the dedication to advance our welfare and find cost effective ways to address the state’s important social and environmental issues.

Letter to the editor: Bevere offers character, experience

Posted on October 15, 2018 |
By Mickey Heinecken



I am writing to support the candidacy of Pete Bevere for Addison County State’s Attorney. I have known Pete for 26 years since he first matriculated to Middlebury College in 1992 where he was a member of the football team for four years. As a football coach, I dreamed of having players like Pete, as he was the ultimate team player: committed to personal excellence and the desire to support his teammates in any way possible. This is a characteristic that he continues to display to this day.

Letter to the editor: Panton board blamed for mistake

Posted on October 15, 2018 |
By Doug Dows



In August (Addison Independent, 8/30/2018), Howard Hall, chair of the Panton selectboard, bragged that they had significantly reduced the tax rate by using surplus funds. Then it was pointed out that those surplus funds had already been designated for the town hall restoration fund and the highway equipment fund.

Letter to the editor: Bray, Hardy have 'proven capacity'

Posted on October 15, 2018 |
By Judy and Michael Olinick



Ruth Hardy and Senator Chris Bray deserve enthusiastic support as the best candidates for Addison County’s two State Senate seats.

The many glowing endorsements from fellow citizens and from past and present legislators who have worked with Bray and Hardy in widely different settings leave no doubt that both have the proven capacity — the knowledge, integrity, focus, energy and dedication — to tackle the complicated issues challenging our Legislature.

Posted on October 15, 2018 |
By Barbara Hofer



As a long-time supporter of Senator Claire Ayer, I can think of no better candidate to replace her in the Vermont Senate than Ruth Hardy. Ruth is a deeply engaged, thoughtful, wise individual who has contributed on many levels to our state and who is poised to be a strong female leader in the legislature.

Letter to the editor: Jerome would be a great addition to the Vermont House

Posted on October 15, 2018 |
By Mitch Pearl



I am writing to urge your support for Stephanie Jerome for State Representative for Brandon, Pittsford, and Sudbury. Stephanie is smart, she is practical, and she listens.

First the smart part. Stephanie served as a policy analyst for NASA. She is used to dealing with complicated problems and absorbing huge amounts of information. We need those skills in Vermont’s leadership today to help us tackle the hard problems.
