I first met Vince Illuzzi a little more than 35 years ago when he was first elected to serve with my father in the Vermont Senate. My dad, a Democrat, and Vince, a Republican, together served the people of Essex/Orleans counties with the superior quality and hard work one would expect from Northeast Kingdomers.
My dad retired as sergeant at arms in ’93, and Vince Illuzzi has continued to serve with the same persistence and quality to this day. I currently serve on our town select board and have had numerous occasions where his knowledge has been very helpful to us. He promptly returns a phone call and is always available to advise and assist.
I know that Vince will serve all Vermonters with the same qualities and pride that he has shown the folks here in the Northeast Kingdom. Please vote for Vince Illuzzi for auditor of accounts. You will be glad you did.
