As a fairly well-known son of Montpelier, having grown up here from the late 1940’s to mid-1960’s and then returning to live in my native home in the late 1990’s, I have witnessed the objectives and actions of a number of different mayors and city councilors over the years.
I strongly urge the voters in Montpelier to support our current mayor, John Hollar, as well as councilors Andy Hooper (Dist 1) and Thierry Guerlain (Dist 2) for re-election this coming March 4th. Further, I urge election of Justin Turcotte to replace retiring councilor Alan Weiss (whose beliefs and voice will be sorely missed) for Dist 3.
Hollar, Hooper and Guerlain have worked hard for this City. While I have not agreed with their positions on every issue, they, along with Turcotte, are the best vote for this next term. Any vote for their opponents would not be good for Montpelier.
