Letter to the editor: Some Independents are actually GOP

Posted on October 18, 2018 |
By Terry Racich



A wolf in sheep’s clothing. This is a phrase that keeps running through my mind after reading a Vermont Digger article on Republicans recruiting candidates as independents in Democrat-leaning districts to make it more palatable. So we have two “independents” for whom a Republican governor sponsors a fundraiser.

Who are we kidding? Why the smoke and mirrors?

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.

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.

I serve alongside Chris Bray in the Vermont State Senate, and it is my sincerest hope that he will be re-elected. Addison County voters would be hard pressed to find anyone to serve who will be more dedicated or more committed to finding positive outcomes for regular Vermonters.

Bray suggests a per-parcel fee to fund clean water; state officials differ on payment plan

n Bray suggests per parcel ChrisBray9612.jpg

MONTPELIER — Debate in Montpelier surrounding efforts to clean up the state’s waterways has been surging like the Otter Creek in April, but legislative action on funding for those efforts has been moving at a glacial pace.

With that in mind, Sen. Chris Bray, D-New Haven, is suggesting Vermont adopt a per-parcel fee that would yield $18.8 million of the estimated $30 million the state will need to raise during each of the next 20 years as its share of a federally mandated, $2.6 billion cleanup of Lake Champlain and related waterways.

Ayer, Claire 06 RGB.jpg

MONTPELIER — Saying she wants to help train and encourage a new generation of leaders in the state’s highest chamber, longtime Addison County Sen. Claire Ayer confirmed this week that she will run for the top leadership position in the Vermont Senate.

And it looks like the Addison Democrat will have plenty of competition for the job of Senate president pro tempore — including from within her own senatorial district, which includes Addison County, Huntington and Buel’s Gore.
