To the Editor:

I am writing in support of Beth Pearce for Vermont State Treasurer.

As a former Vermont state representative (1987-1997) and a retired Vermont teacher of 33 years, I have worked with and watched the performance of several of Vermont’s state treasurers. With that perspective, and based on her performance as state treasurer, I believe Beth deserves to continue as state treasurer.

During the uncertain economic times that have followed the national financial collapse and the subsequent recession, Beth has been instrumental in preserving and protecting Vermont’s state retirement funds and bond rating. Following the destruction of Tropical Storm Irene, I saw firsthand how effectively Beth worked with the people of the Deerfield Valley in their recovery by assisting them with state highway aid and education tax and payment matters. She was decisive, focused, and committed.

I currently serve with Beth on the Vermont Student Assistance Corporation Board of Directors. In this capacity I have observed her to be clear-thinking, knowledgeable, intelligent, and competent. Her approach to money management is both prudent and responsible.

Since 2010, when she became Vermont’s State Treasurer, Beth Pearce has demonstrated the non-partisan and professional commitment to her position that Vermonters want and deserve. Please join me in voting for her.

Sincerely,

Dave Larsen

Wilmington
