• Logic lacking in testimonial

    Michael Lannon’s letter of support for Wendy Wilton for state treasurer bears some comment.

    Mr. Lannon relays former treasurer Jeb Spaulding’s comment that Beth Pearce is the best Vermont state treasurer in recent memory. From that Mr. Lannon draws the conclusion that Mr. Spaulding’s comment was a self-admission that he was not a very good treasurer. Then Mr. Lannon wrote that James Douglas, who preceded Mr. Spaulding as state treasurer, was a great treasurer.

    I wonder where Mr. Lannon learned logic. One, I’m sure that Mr. Spaulding remembers his predecessor, so Jim Douglas is included in “recent memory” group. And just because Mr. Spaulding thinks Beth Pearce has done a better job then he did doesn’t mean that Mr. Spaulding admits to doing a poor job.

    Vote for whom you think is best, but discount illogical statements like that of Mr. Lannon’s.
