On Taxes and Health Care

 Editor: I believe health care is a basic human right, and I hope that Vermont—if not the U.S.—can develop and implement a single-payer system that leaves capitalism, profit, and inflated salaries behind. The process of transitioning to such a system is exciting and terrifying, fraught with genuine challenges. It won’t be easy, and it will take tim...

Scott Williams is the Candidate for Today

Editor: Election of the States Attorney for Washington County is much more important than many people understand. It is a four year term, unusual in Vermont elections. The individual in that office sets the tone for police work and court outcomes to a degree that the average citizen cannot understand. Tom Kelly got my vote in 2006. Upon the death o...

Restoring Balance in Montpelier

Editor: For several years, the Democrats have had a ‘super-majority’ in Montpelier. They are running the show and have an agenda that doesn’t include hope or prosperity for the average Vermonter. What we need in Montpelier is fairness. That means balance in representation. Fairness would mean that all political sides would have a level of represent...

Milne is the One

Editor: Do you think Shumlin deserves another term as our governor? His mercenary, fast talking property purchase is highly irregular. He offered $68,000 for a house and seventeen acres appraised at $200,000, all on the back of a business sized envelope, to a man with a speech impediment. The only thing that stopped the deal from going through was...

His service since 2010 has been exemplary, always focusing on the needs of the less fortunate among us while maintaining a record of and commitment to appropriate fiscal prudence. His accomplishments the past two years have included moving...

Return Pollina to Vermont Senate

Editor: As election time is once again upon us, I am writing to encourage my fellow Washington county neighbors to reelect the most dedicated person in Vermont politics, Senator Anthony Pollina. There is no one candidate in Vermont who is more dedicated to finding solutions than Senator Pollina. Whether it’s the quest for quality health care for al...

Mark MacDonald Works to Find Practical Solutions

Editor: We’re lucky in Orange County to have a Senator – Mark MacDonald – who understands the challenges we face. These include the day-to-day stresses that our economy puts on working Vermonters, but also the importance of preserving the working landscape for future generations. Unlike some, Mark does not approach these challenges in a...

Tom Kelly for States Attorney

Editor: I notice the reports in the Times Argus concerning some of the local political muscle supporting Scott Williams for Washington County State’s Attorney. There could be some political reasons for these endorsements but one thing they lack is common sense. Tom Kelly, an experienced prosecutor, has been doing a good job. Why would you want to p...

He is an assistant professor of computer science at Norwich University and lives in Berlin with his wife and two young children.
