This week the News and Citizen carried a questionnaire given to me and my opponent. I appreciated the opportunity to share my answers. What I did not appreciate was the way the News and Citizen shielded my opponent from the most difficult question, “What qualifies you to be in the Vermont House of Representatives?” Not only are they not covering this … Continue reading My Opponent’s Lack of Experience
While California Jumps Off a Cliff Should Vermont Follow?
Many moms ask their reckless children, “If everyone jumped off a cliff would you follow?” “Of course not!” is the answer.

What Are You Doing at the Dump?
There’s nothing wrong with discussing current events at a country club over martinis or at winery while sipping a nice red.

A few weeks ago, the Libertarian Party approached me with their desire to nominate me as a fusion candidate. They did not ask me to embrace their entire platform.
