While sitting in front of my business one nice summer day recently, I struck up a lengthy conversation with Patti Lewis, one of our State Representatives from Northfield and Berlin.
Because of the volume of people who frequent my barbershop that come from a wide range of backgrounds and careers, I invited Patti to stop by any time to talk with Vermonters about their thoughts and concerns, as well as my own, on issues we face in Vermont today and in our future.
Patti has spent several hours in the shop listening to customers and myself to include elderly retired, military – both active duty and guard and reserve, students – both high school and college, and middle class, average, hard-working Vermonters.
I am impressed with her organizational skills to take notes, and keep a running log on comments and ideas discussed to refer back to if re-elected.
Her common sense approach and ability to listen before forming a decision in regards to important topics in Northfield, Berlin and the state of Vermont as a whole is paramount.
Patti has worked extremely hard at raising a family with great results, and put several years of dedication, time and great effort supporting her husband during a long and distinguished military career.
Her life is dedicated with family, community service and handling the responsibility of political public service.
I am extremely impressed with her ability to listen and be concerned about where Vermonters are heading in regards to prescription drug charges, property taxes, rising home heating costs, education costs, military cutbacks, creating jobs and starting and keeping business here in Northfield, Berlin and again Vermont as a whole.
Patti’s ability to be out in the public to listen, learn and act if re -elected to the 2015 Legislature is foremost.
In closing, it is with great dignity and pride that I endorse Patti Lewis for re-election for Vermont State Representative for the towns of Northfield and Berlin.
