Patrick Leahy, D, for another six-year term, and Rep. Peter Welch, D, to his third two-year term. That reason? Both have served the state well with honesty, openness, hard work that has paid off, and political positions that put the common good ahead of special interests.</p> <h4 class="meta2">View: <a href="/?q=node/6122/lightbox2" rel="lightframe">Quick Read</a> | <a href="/?q=node/6122">Full Article</a> </h4> <p><a href="http://addisonindependent.com/201010leahy-welch-deserve-re-election" target="_blank">read more</a></p> Editorial election 2010 endorsements Fri, 29 Oct 2010 17:00:03 +0000 Tamara Hilmes 6122 at http://addisonindependent.com Editorial: Voting 'yes' on the amendment http://addisonindependent.com/201010voting-yes-amendment <p>On the question of whether to support an amendment to the state constitution to allow some 17-year-old residents to vote in state primaries, the critical question is this: Will it encourage more young Vermonters to vote or not?</p> <p>The intent of the amendment is to get Vermont’s youth more involved in voting at a slightly earlier age — perhaps when some are in their senior year in high school. The amendment specifically allows for 17-year-old Vermont residents, who will turn 18 before the general election, to vote in the primary.</p> <h4 class="meta2">View: <a href="/?q=node/6121/lightbox2" rel="lightframe">Quick Read</a> | <a href="/?q=node/6121">Full Article</a> </h4> <p><a href="http://addisonindependent.com/201010voting-yes-amendment" target="_blank">read more</a></p> Editorial election 2010 endorsements Fri, 29 Oct 2010 16:57:51 +0000 Tamara Hilmes 6121 at http://addisonindependent.com Editorial: Which is it, Gibbs or Condos? http://addisonindependent.com/201010editorial-which-it-gibbs-or-condos <div id="cke_pastebin"> In the race for Secretary of State, Vermonters have two good choices in Republican Jason Gibbs and Democrat Jim Condos.
