To the Editor:

I'm writing this letter in strong support of James Carroll for Vermont state representative for District 2-2. I've known Jim for many years and consider him to be a friend, but that's not why I'm supporting him. I support him because I can honestly say that Jim Carroll is as dedicated a public servant as I have ever seen. He takes his job seriously and he strives to serve the community to the best of his abilities every single day.

Others who know Jim Carroll will tell you that service to the community is in his blood as both his parents served the town of Bennington and its residents for many years. Jim proudly follows their tradition of public service and honors their memories every day with his work ethic and tireless dedication to his community.

On a personal level, this spring, when I kept running into dead ends in getting pandemic assistance from the Department of Labor, I turned to Jim Carroll for help. I explained my situation to Jim and within an hour he had put me in touch with the deputy commissioner at DOL who was able to solve my problem and others that I encountered down the road. Jim's assistance on this issue was indispensable.

Jim cares about the future of his community and he's willing to put in the hard work to make Bennington a better place for everyone to live, work and raise a family. Vote for Jim Carroll on November 3rd.

Jay Chapman,
