Thank You to Washington County Supporters, Voters

Editor: Well as most of you know by now, I have lost my bid to become one of Washington County’s senators. First, congratulations to the incumbents – Senators Pollina, Cummings and Doyle. Job well done! I worked about as hard as anyone could and as one of the reporters said on election night, I left no stone unturned. But it was not to be. Se...

Vote, But Also Volunteer!

Editor: In the midst of this election season, it’s easy to focus on what a given candidate will or won’t do to make things better. This is a plea to take matters into your own hands. The people of central Vermont have an immediate opportunity to make things better in our community by volunteering at the Good Samaritan Haven in Barre. I spent two ye...

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...
