I am writing in support of Beth Pearce for Vermont state treasurer. I have known Beth since she was appointed state treasurer through an economic development board on which we both serve. I have found Beth to be smart, insightful, innovative and caring in her contributions to this board’s work. Beth is a fighter for all Vermonters, whether it be in protecting Vermont’s bond rating, lowering the state’s interest costs, coming to the aid of Vermonters following Tropical Storm Irene or working to get the state’s pension liabilities under control.
Beth is a competent, experienced treasurer who served as assistant state treasurer in both Vermont and Massachusetts for 13 years prior to her appointment as treasurer. I especially like that Beth does this work in a collaborative, nonpartisan way. Let’s not let the GOP super PAC buy her opponent the office.
Please vote for Beth Pearce for Vermont state treasurer.
