Posted on October 25, 2018 |
By Addison Independent



The six candidates for the Senate seats representing Addison County, Huntington and Buel’s Gore were asked to comment on five important issues.

Today, for the fifth issue, we asked each of them to address health care/housing with the following prompt:

Health care insurance, finding affordable housing and education are the three cost drivers in society. We’ve discussed education. As Senator what measures would you propose to help make housing and health care insurance more affordable? 350-500 words.

Letter to the editor: May the best candidates win state Senate contest

Posted on October 22, 2018 |
By Nick Causton



I have been counting with interest the ratio of letter writers to the Addison Independent supporting Bray and Hardy compared to Audet and Ralston. At about 7 to 1, mainly from the “Big” town and associated non-gated suburbs, it either implies campaigning differentials, or a propensity to write a lot of letters in the big town, or a reluctance by rural Addison County residents to be outspoken.

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?

Editor's note: The response from Ruth Hardy that we published in Thursday's print edition and here on addisonindependent.com mistakenly left off the last two paragraphs of her response. It was our mistake. We are printing the enitre respone below. Appologies to the candidate.

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.
