I am writing this letter to encourage the reelection of Charles “Butch” Shaw to the Vermont Legislature.
Butch has served in the House for three years and has done an admirable job, working diligently on his committee assignments, selflessly spending time away from his home in Pittsford and being continually involved in the machinations of the legislative process. He has served the citizens of Pittsford, Sudbury and of Vermont, in the highest and most commendable manner.
I have known Butch for many years and have found him to be a splendid individual, a fine family man, a good husband and one who regularly attends weekend services.
I heartily and strongly recommend the reelection of Butch to the Legislature this November as the Vermont House representative for Brandon, Pittsford and Sudbury.
