Opinion: Sheldon would bring clear vision

Posted on October 23, 2014 |
By David Littlefield



When I wake up in the morning on a clear day in Middlebury I can see both up close and as far as the terrain will permit me our wonderful town and countryside. If, on the other hand, I’m asked after the customary Thanksgiving dinner to help clear the table, I know, too, what “clear” means: Look around this table and let’s work together on a happy cleanup. Let’s get things in order again.

Opinion: Fisher is patient, a good listener

By George Smith



I am voting for Mike Fisher for state representative this November.

I have been around for a few years. I have seen many politicians come and go. I support Mike Fisher because he is patient, he listens even when people are frustrated, he works very hard for us. I hope you will vote for Mike, too.

Opinion: McEathron and Sheldon touted

Posted on October 23, 2014 |
By Peter James



For the first time in a while, I’m excited for a House race in Middlebury. The young independent Calvin McEathron has injected energy into the race, promising to tackle the tough economic challenges Vermont is facing, especially his support and ideas around small-scale economic development.

He’s a hardworking candidate who has dedicated himself to meeting constituents and earning every vote. He has earned my respect and he will represent Middlebury well.

Greg Dennis: Ag traditions old and new in House race

Posted on October 23, 2014 |
By Greg Dennis



It’s been true for decades that in Vermont most of us no longer live or work on farms. Addison County sometimes even seems to be slowly suburbanizing.

So it’s easy to forget how wrapped up Vermont’s identity remains with agriculture — from the beauty of our landscape to the local produce at the natural foods store around the corner.

While our politics are often dominated by concerns about energy, social services and healthcare, agriculture still has a big role to play.

Opinion: Single-payer health care system begs many questions

Posted on October 17, 2014 |
By Steve Reynolds



I am trying to understand the cost of Vermont’s healthcare system, and how that cost could be met from taxes on working people, should Vermont “go it alone” with the so-called “single payer system.”

Opinion: McEathron lays out good priorities for the state

Posted on October 17, 2014 |
By Terry Eagan



I’m encouraged to see the green “Calvin McEathron for Vermont House” signs sprouting up around Middlebury. You can be sure that each one of those signs represents an in-person visit from Calvin where the resident had the pleasure of discussing Vermont’s future with this impressive young man.

I would like to use this letter to briefly summarize why I will be voting for Calvin McEathron and not for his opponent Amy Sheldon.

Opinion: Smiley has right qualities to make a good legislator

Posted on October 17, 2014 |
By Anna Rose Benson



I am happy to write to you about Susan Smiley. Susan is a candidate for state representative for New Haven, Bridport and Weybridge.

I met Susan when we both had kids in school and I liked her right away. She was smart, funny, honest, friendly and generous and she adored her family. She grew organic vegetables, milk, beef, flowers and homemade yogurt on their River Road farm that she sold to markets and delivered to your door.
