I am writing in support of Diane Alberts for alderman. Diane is an articulate, knowledgeable woman who is well aware of the happenings in Rutland. She is a frequent contributor to these pages, speaking out on a wide range of topics. Reading her well phrased, comprehensive letters to the editor, you know she does her homework and understands the issues she addresses in her comments.
Diane will bring this same diligence to the Board of Aldermen when elected. As a former teacher, Diane knows the importance of a strong school system in creating a thriving economy; she understands the need for a healthy, safe environment that protects individuals and families; and she realizes that our infrastructure, both economic and physical, needs attention. Diane is a devoted city fan who will put her intelligence and integrity to work for Rutland.
To hear what Diane and the other 11 candidates for the board feel they can bring to the board, come to the Candidate Forum at 6:30 p.m. on Wednesday, Feb. 27 in the Fox Room of the Rutland Free Library.
And on Tuesday, March 5, vote for Diane Alberts for alderman.
