Letter: Endorses Durfee for state representative
To the Editor:
I'm writing to endorse David Durfee for Vermont state representative, representing Shaftsbury, Sunderland, and Glastenbury. I have known Dave for 18 years, worked together with him on some initiatives and discussed many others.
Dave is committed to our community and to keeping our schools strong, our environment healthy, and our economy working fairly for all. He will be an excellent legislator for us because of his "people skills" and consensus approach to problem solving. He listens to people — neighbors, customers, taxpayers — to understand what's really important and why.
It's not easy to put others' opinions ahead of your own, but Dave does, and he's careful to find balance when people don't agree, to find ways for all stakeholders to come out ahead. Dave is an honest and reliable consensus builder, and he will work well with other legislators to do what we all need.
Dave is also very skilled with operations and budgets. I have seen him work successfully in business, nonprofit, and public service sectors to provide great services while minimizing costs and taxes. We can count on David Durfee to listen to us and to work for our community.
