Here are some things to look for as Vermont election results are reported next Tuesday night.
Turnout. Off-year turnout in Vermont typically runs between 55 and 60 percent of the registered voters. This year’s turnout is likely to be between 45 and 50 percent, about 10 percent lower than normal.
I want to apologize to Valerie Mullin and to the voters of Addison County. I wrongly said that Valerie did not demonstrate Vermont values by having her personal political lawn signs at the most recent youth soccer event at Mount Abe. I’ve been informed that her level of donation to the youth sports program allowed her to put up her signs at the event. I did not check the facts before writing my letter and for that I apologize to all.
In weighing many factors I believe Fred Baser is the most outstanding candidate for a House seat in my district. Fred is certainly someone people can trust to work hard. His character is top notch and his public service experience is extensive.
As Nov. 4 fast approaches, I personally am going to be supporting Calvin McEathron.
Betty Nuovo has done admirable things for Middlebury in the past, but I am basing my vote on the future two years. Throughout his campaign, Calvin has consistently presented creative solutions to solve many of the tough problems facing our great town and state.
My name is Suzanne Boyle. I am retired now and have Medicare plus a Supplemental Health Insurance Plan — USAA, a nonprofit healthcare plan. However, it wasn’t always this simple.
I have known and worked closely with Mike Fisher for a number of years. He has my vote because he is hardworking, trustworthy and has the best Vermont values.
There are candidates out there who believe that the way to get elected is to promote fear and attack the integrity of their opponents. This is not the Bristol, Lincoln, Monkton or Starksboro way of gaining support.
We live in a comfortable, friendly and very interesting place and, this November, we are fortunate in having four competent candidates compete for two seats to represent our district in the Vermont House of Representatives.
I plan on voting for Mike Fisher for one of these seats, to continue in helping him in his strong work of helping us govern ourselves, and hope you, too, will consider voting to return him to this important work.
