I appreciate all who voted in the August 14 primary and those in the towns of Bridgewater, Chittenden, Killington and Mendon that also supported my candidacy on the ballot for a new term as state representative.
I believe strongly in fiscal responsibility and advancing bills that will improve our economic future. I am also a believer in the legislature getting its work done in the budgeted time allotted. The overtime session this year could have been avoided in my view (I forgo legislative pay to do my small part in needlessly costing taxpayers’ money).
This past session I supported or sponsored legislation to improve the state’s economy, improve the efficiency of the legislative process, lower taxes on Social Security benefits, streamline the Act 250 process, provide consumer protection measures for small businesses and allow pharmacists to disclose the cash price of prescription drugs.
While I don’t have all the answers, I will bring a practical and sensible approach to issues. I will continue to keep district residents informed through various communications. Lastly, I will not promise things we cannot afford.
We have lived in Chittenden since 2006 and in Vermont for close to 35 years. Pat and I have two adult children and are blessed with three adorable grandsons. I am the former president of the Vermont Retail & Grocers Association and prior to that, I held various management positions in the food industry.
I hope you will support me on Election Day, Nov 6. I know the players, the process and understand the politics to best serve our district. And I am committed to promoting policies that will help our region.
