McFaun & LaClair Will Make a Great Team for Barre Town

Editor: After 22 years in the Vermont House representing Barre Town, I have chosen not to run for re-election. That does not mean, however, that I have lost interest in Vermont government; indeed, I care very much, which is why I am voting to re-elect Topper McFaun and to elect Rob LaClair to replace me in the House. Topper McFaun has been my partn...

Vote for J. Guy Isabelle

Editor: I know a lot of you people are wondering who to vote for. I also do a lot of listening, watching and reading. I know for sure if I lived in Barre Town, I would vote for J. Guy Isabelle. He is running for Vermont House of Representatives. I know he will fight for you. I’ve known Mr. Isabelle for almost 10 years. He’s the program director for...

Re-elect Bill Doyle

Editor: For the last twelve years I have had the honor and privilege to serve in the state senate with Sen. Bill Doyle. Bill is a statesman who represents his constituents well. His background in education has served the state well as we attempt to grapple with how to improve education and reduce costs. For the last two years, Bill and I have serve...

Reelect Ann and Anthony

Editor: I would like to write in support of two of our current senators representing Washington County: Ann Cummings and Anthony Pollina. Both Ann and Anthony have given many years of service to the people of Washington County, both in and out of the State House. It is impossible to list all of what they have done within the short span of a letter...

Davis: Dedicated to the Needs of Her Constituents

Editor: Each election year I find it hard to confine to a paragraph the good things to be said about Susan Hatch Davis, our rep for Corinth, Chelsea, Orange, Vershire, Washington, and Williamstown. However, I’ll do my best to summarize. Susan’s support for working Vermonters is unflagging. She works incredibly hard. She listens to people. She works...

McDonald Will Bring Experience and Leadership to the Senate

Editor: Vermont has a long tradition of outstanding women who have provided our state with valuable leadership. Consuelo Bailey, Barbara Snelling and Madeline Kunin are just a few of the names that come to mind. Lola Aiken was never elected to public office but, nevertheless, provided extraordinary leadership in Washington D.C. and Vermont. That is...

Washington County Will Be Well Represented by McDonald

Editor: I am writing this letter in support of Pat McDonald, Republican candidate for Washington County State Senate. I have had the pleasure of knowing Pat, both professionally and personally, since the early 1990s. Pat has earned the respect of members of all political parties in Vermont. She has successfully worked in leadership roles as the hea...

Berlin Pond Does NOT Belong to All Vermonters

  Editor: It is my belief, I may be wrong, that Berlin Pond is located in Berlin and as such it belongs to the town and of course the state and the people who pay taxes for its maintenance. I was not aware that all 600,000 (maybe more or less) Vermonters paid taxes to Berlin for the care of the “pond” which is the source of life-giving water t...
