Letter to the editor: Lisman will provide fresh leadership
Lisman will provide fresh leadership
Vermont needs a change at the top - a new leader without ties to special interests or political blocs; a responsible administrator who will correct or throw out old policies that were ill advised or misguided; a smart businessman with a clear vision of where we need to go and how to succeed as a state.
Education costs are out of control, driven by the teachers' union at the expense of property taxpayers. Valuable jobs are leaving the state because of the high taxes funding social services that are ineffectively applied and unaccounted for. The current administration has overridden local interests by actively promoting solar and wind projects. The list goes on and on.
Bruce Lisman will deliver the fresh unbiased professional leadership that Vermont is in dire need of. He owes no one anything – self-made, Vermont native, Bruce is a smart, successful business leader, not a self-serving political operator. We don't need partisan politicians who buy votes with misguided social policies, and unbalanced tax policies and loopholes – we need a leader with integrity and vision who will guide and support the House and Senate as they develop realistic budgets and enact legislation that attracts solid sustainable jobs, protects our quality of life and provides high quality practical education opportunities for all Vermonters.
— Robert Finn Shelburne
