Supporting Jeanne Conner for Selectboard

I am pleased to write in support of Jeanne Conner for Bennington Select Board. Jeanne and I served together on the Bennington School Board for a number of years. In that role, Jeanne served on the SVSU and multiple committees including the middle school building, policy, and more. I experienced first-hand her commitment to Bennington in the open, honest, and thoughtful way she discussed issues, listened to the opinions of others, and worked to find solutions without any personal agenda other than doing right by Bennington's children, schools, and taxpayers.

Professionally Jeanne has served Bennington in other capacities dedicated to the greater good of the community. Jeanne has worked in development at two vital community resources: the Southwest Vermont Medical Center and the Bennington Museum, doing her utmost to raise funds for both the health care needs of our community and the museum's important cultural work. Jeanne is a Bennington resident who acts upon the responsibility we all hold to give back to our community. We can all benefit from her experience and dedication.

Jeanne brings a thoughtful, open mind and a long history of serving the Bennington community to the table. Please join me in voting for Jeanne Conner for Bennington Select Board on Tuesday March 1.
