To the Editor

I am writing today to express my support for Roger Allbee for state senator. While I cannot actually vote for Roger due to the fact I live in Wilmington, I would in a heartbeat if I could. Roger has a long history of serving, and is uniquely qualified to be a State Senator. He is a student of Vermont’s rich history, yet has a firm grasp of where we need to be heading as a state. Roger’s leadership in the recent past as Vermont Secretary of Agriculture and as executive director of our state’s USDA Farm Service Agency has helped to drive Vermont’s “renaissance in agriculture.” He led these agencies in a way that worked to help all Vermonters, always keeping in mind the need to balance food production and consumer issues such as the environment. Roger is not particularly interested in partisan politics, but rather, working with any and all to achieve what is best.

More important to me than any of the above is that Roger is a gentleman. He listens and he cares. He acts on what he knows to be the right thing.

I urge all your readers to vote for Roger Allbee for state senator in the primary August 26. We need Roger in Montpelier.
