To the Editor:

One can imagine what the framers of Vermont's constitution would think of Mr. Weissman's claim that the State Auditor position was intended as a policy and political job. Frankly, we need an "at large" statewide policy and political specialist in Montpelier like a hole in the head. Linda Joy Sullivan, my wife, has unlike her opponent, decades of truly relevant public audit training, education, experience and certifications.

As for Mr. Weissman's elitist characterization of the law school from which Linda Joy earned a Master of Law in international taxation, I was proud that Linda opted at nights, weekends and even during the working day to continue her education in this specialized area all while continuing to practice as one of the few female CPAs to have established a nationally registered public auditing firm.

Hard work, experience, credentials and a non-partisan approach to government. I'll take that over a career specialist in "politics."

Allan Sullivan,
