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?

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.

Letter to the editor: Democratic candidates stand out in strong Senate field

Posted on October 8, 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.
