Elections cause disappointment for some and I'd like to publicly express mine. The only article that didn't pass (Shaftsbury election) was $2,500 for the Turning Point Center in Bennington. The center provides a huge support for the anonymous people that walk through those doors each day. Sometimes a meeting is all stands between recovery and relapse. Alcohol and drug addiction affect many in our community. We must support recovery. Between now and next year's election, I hope the Shaftsbury community realizes the incredible value of Turning Point and will choose to support their mission.
