Letter to the editor: Addison-4 GOP candidates better for state's economy

Posted on November 1, 2018 |
By Jim Peabody Sr.



When it comes to helping the needy, all legislators know that more handouts and benefits help. Especially they know that increasing those benefits also helps their own careers. Unfortunately most legislators leave it at that. They are not concerned about the careers of the people they are trying to help. But some folks know that beyond a handout these people need a hand up.

Posted on November 1, 2018 |
By Michael Elmore



Ever since I was a kid, I had always dreamed of becoming a police officer. Today, serving my community as a deputy for the Addison County Sheriff’s office, it really is a dream come true.

Posted on November 1, 2018 |
By Rory Thibault



In January of this year, when I was appointed as Washington County’s State’s Attorney, I stepped into an office with an exhausted staff, a growing backlog of cases, and intense public scrutiny. The office was also short two prosecutors between a vacancy and medical leave. It was a challenging time.

Letter to the editor: Mullin backed on her tax platform

Posted on November 1, 2018 |
By Renee McGuinness



I endorse Valerie Mullin for state representative for Addison-4 House district (Bristol, Lincoln, Monkton, Starksboro). Valerie knows Vermonters cannot thrive under the current tax burden, and we certainly don’t need any new taxes. She knows a carbon tax will not save the climate.

It’s time for a change in our thinking and our actions. It’s time for Valerie Mullin.

Letter to the editor: Enough is enough, says Audet supporter

Posted on October 29, 2018 |
By Sarah M. Audet



When a loved one runs for office it can be difficult to read the local paper. There are letters and columns that may not accurately reflect the person you know and what they stand for. It comes with the territory, though, and I can let most things go.

Except for Thursday’s “Between the Lines” column by Greg Dennis.

Letter to the editor: Audet and Ralston understand farming, economy

Posted on October 29, 2018 |
By Benj Deppman



I don’t identify as either Republican or Democrat. I certainly don’t identify with everything either party espouses, and I prefer not to follow any party line. I believe our elected officials have a duty to know the issues and vote based upon the issue at hand, taking into consideration the needs of their constituents.
