To the Editor:

In the focus on so many races in this year's election season let us not lose sight of the fact that Vermont is represented in the House of Representatives by one of the most respected members of Congress, Congressman Peter Welch. In this age of divisive politics Congressman Welch is able to reach across the aisle and work with all members of Congress. We are fortunate to have such a representative with such a reputation who works for the betterment of Vermont, the economy, the environment, health care, peace, farmers, and our veterans. A vote for Congressman Welch is a vote for all of us.
