Backing Malcolm for the House
I voted by early ballot today and am proud to report that I voted for John Malcolm for state representative for the Rutland-Bennington district including Pawlet.
John has been a wonderful state representative because he cares about the people he represents, keeps us informed about issues and listens and responds to his constituents. John has always responded to requests I have made for information or assistance in navigating the state bureaucracy.
As a farmer and businessman, John knows that a strong Vermont economy with good job opportunities requires investment in educational opportunities for our children pre-K through college or technical school, good roads, bridges, railroads. He knows that increasing access to telecommunication and Internet statewide will enable all Vermonters to share in the opportunities that digital connectedness offers — such as opportunities for better jobs, education and growing small businesses.
A former member of the House Agriculture Committee and present member of House Natural Resource and Energy Committee, John is a steadfast promoter of issues important to farmers and woodland owners, preserving our unique Vermont working landscape and our present and emerging agricultural and wood products enterprises.
John is a kind, honest, decent and fair-minded man who is there for every person he represents. Vote for John Malcolm, our best choice for state representative in the Rutland-Bennington district.
