Opinion: Spencer, Lanpher deserve votes

After being appointed as one of the representatives of the Addison-3 district in the Vermont House of Representatives, Warren Van Wyck has proven to me that he should not be returned to the House.

He has demonstrated neglect for the environment by being the only legislator in the state to garner a zero rating from Vermont Conservation Voters. He demonstrated at least a gross misunderstanding of women’s issues by being one of the few representatives to vote against equal pay for women. And he demonstrated that his sympathies lie more with employers than workers when he was one of only three representatives to vote against raising the minimum wage.

John Spencer is running for a seat in the House so he can protect our environment, change the funding of education without sacrificing quality, encourage good-paying jobs, ensure affordable healthcare, and support agriculture.

Join me on or before Nov. 4 in voting for John Spencer and Diane Lanpher to be our two representatives in Addison-3.
