Hats off to the Town of Middlebury, the American Legion, and the Recreation Department for the wonderful fireworks display at the Recreation Park New Year’s Eve. It was excellent, and well attended.
I want to express my deep faith in Ron Holmes as candidate for High Bailiff. You may not see his name on too many T-shirts, bumper stickers, or pens around Addison County, but you will see his name everywhere it matters. You will see his name associated with the Porter Hospital Auxiliary, and the National Sheriff’s Association, as he is a member. You will see his name in the N.E. Police Chief Association and WomenSafe, as he is a proud supporter.

He will now go on to face independent candidate Mike Elmore, a sergeant with the Addison County Sheriff’s Department (ACSD), in the Nov. 3 General Election.
Silberman has raised $7,245 for his...
MIDDLEBURY — Ron Holmes has met a ton of people during a more-than-40-year career in law enforcement, security, paving and automotive repair.
He’s a personable guy.
Now Holmes, 65, hopes those decades of chance interactions will pay dividends in Tuesday’s primary elections, when he and fellow Middlebury Democrat Dave Silberman will vie for the chance to advance to the Nov. 3 General Election that will decide the county’s next high bailiff. The primary winner will face independent candidate Mike Elmore, a sergeant with the Addison County Sheriff’s Department (ACSD).
