Letter: Supporting Kathleen James
To the Editor:
I'm looking forward to casting my vote for Kathleen James as our next State Representative on November 6. With all the wrong headed, misguided thinking taking place in Washington these days, now, more than ever, we need to make a statement by electing public officials who are committed to the rule of law, ethical behavior and forward thinking policy development. Kathleen James has impressed me as just such a candidate; a candidate I'm proud to support.
All too often politicians opt for short term gain that eventually will result in long term pain. President Trump's policies of climate change denial and his exit from the Paris Accords are prime examples of catastrophic shortsightedness. Kathleen, on the other hand, strikes me as a the type of thoughtful public servant who truly understands the responsible way forward when it comes to our environment, affordable housing, health care and sustainable economic strategies.Montpelier needs more clear headed, energetic thinkers like Kathleen James. I hope the voters in Arlington, Manchester Sandgate and Sunderland share my enthusiasm and help send Kathleen to the Vermont House of Representatives come November.
