Editorial: Phil Scott for Lt. Governor

Posted on October 25, 2010 |
By Angelo S. Lynn



In the race for lieutenant governor, Republican Phil Scott stands out as an independent thinker, a man of integrity, a competitor on anything with wheels that goes fast, and as sincere and nice a guy as you’re likely to find on the campaign trail.

Born and raised in Barre by his father, who had lost both his legs on D-Day, he learned early on how to rely on his own abilities, as well as to take responsibility for others when he could.
From that background he honed a political philosophy that can be boiled down to an overarching theme: self-reliance and community.

ADDISON COUNTY — An estimated 50 percent of Americans between the ages of 18 and 29 turned out to vote in the 2008 presidential elections, setting national records for youth turnout.
In the lead up to the elections this November, though, clerks in Addison County say they haven’t seen a huge rush of younger voters registering.

“I haven’t had any young kids come to the counter (to register),” said Vergennes city clerk Joan Devine, thinking back to the past couple of months. “Just our regular people — ones who have moved into town.”

Candidates on the Issues: Claire Ayer, Senate

STATE BUDGET: We have few choices in the state budget other than decreasing our expenses or increasing our revenues. I’ll look at both. We’ve begun the process of consolidating some agencies for cost savings and efficiency and will continue with that strategy. Our focus will be on the products and services they deliver, how we adapt to make them less expensive, or how we do without them.

Candidates on the Issues: Mark Young, Senate

STATE BUDGET: The state budget shortfall is currently projected to be around $120 million, but the shortfall will likely be larger than that; the proposed savings from the Challenges for Change, if successful, will not begin immediately but will phase in over time.

Candidates on the Issues: Robert Wagner, Senate

STATE BUDGET: Shift taxes from earned income in business and wages to unearned profits on land speculation and natural resource extraction. There is $1.2 billion per year in tax revenue on resources alone, but corporations pocket this revenue. The Legislature acts in the interests of corporate lobbyists and land speculators, driving business and wage-earners away from Vermont. See the Prosper Vermont citizen legislative initiative at ProsperVermont.com.

Candidates on the Issues: Joy Jones, Addison-Rutland-1

STATE BUDGET: I am very concerned about the state budget shortfall! However, I do not believe that raising taxes is a solution! My first solution to this problem would be to call for a complete outside review of all state expenditures. The last time we did this was in 1977, and it saved our state millions of dollars.

Candidates on the Issues: Will Stevens, Addison-Rutland-1

STATE BUDGET: We have a situation in which the budget shortfall is driving policy, when it should be the other way around. This is a defining moment for the Legislature as we weigh “bad” against “worse.”
