I love Vermont for many reasons, but two of the most important reasons are the beauty of our landscape and our devotion to our schools.
On both fronts, Vermont has been moving in the wrong direction. The Shumlin administration’s policy of fast tracking industrial wind and solar has done immeasurable damage to our landscape. Act 46, the Shumlin administration’s initiative to create efficiency in our schools by doing away with local school boards in favor of greater centralization, creates no new efficiency whatsoever. On the contrary, without the engagement of local boards it will diminish quality.
Bruce Lisman is the only candidate who has proposed ideas that would begin reverse the damage of these disastrous policies. He deserves our support.
