To the Editor:

I drive to work and look at the houses for sale in what seems like an endless sea of for sale signs. I pass by small businesses long gone or on the verge of going away. Country stores, mom and pop shops struggling in what is a fight for their very survival.

These aren’t statistics on CNN but friends, friends who lost their house to foreclosure or struggle to make the payment only for the bank to tell them “miss a few payments and we may be able to help you.” What they don’t tell you is they add those payments to the back side and ruin your credit.

Over the past year I have seen a lot of new regulations and they all seem to hurt the working class, regulations that protect the banks and Wall Street. Oh, remember the people “We the People” helped out of trouble.

When will this one-sided government end? The government is broken and out of touch. I don’t see anyone in Congress struggling to put food on their table or losing their homes.

When I look at all the money corporate America and Wall Street gave our incumbent senators and congressman it makes me wonder why they would give large sums of money without expecting anything in return.

Enter Dan Freilich, our Wilmington, VT, candidate for US Senate. Dan will not accept corporate donations or any special interest donations including PAC money. If you have an opportunity to talk to Dan you really should take the time. He is a naval officer, a doctor, and a father.

When I first met Dan, I felt that he was a man of honor and integrity and someone worth your attention. Oh and did I mention Dan is from Wilmington? Having a US senator in the valley would really help our economic situation.

Please remove all incumbents and put in a new government, put Dan Freilich in the US Senate. Check out his website,

Robert M. Lambert
