To the Editor:

There are few people who know our areas natural resources and wildlife like Jack Stannard. Where are the bear corridors, the deer yards, the springs? Was that a bobcat or a lynx that just came through my field? Jack's wisdom is second to none about the plants and wildlife native to Vermont and is always willing to share his knowledge with those around him. We can't leave it to chance that the next generation will respect and preserve of our natural environment, we need to set and example and teach them to care. Jack is a gentleman with patience and understanding who also cares deeply for his hometown of Dorset...he will make the right choices if elected to the Dorset Select Board. Please vote for Jack Stannard on March 1.
