To the Editor:

Thank you to all who supported me in the recent primary.

Three major challenges face us as we approach the new biennium in January.

Irene long-term recovery. Following our initial handling of the crisis, which gave all of us good reason to be proud as Vermonters, we need to revisit some of the original repairs to prepare for future challenges and work with FEMA for the funding that we in good faith have planned upon.

Economic development with livable-wage jobs. We need to expand the economy through increased structural and electronic infrastructure, decreased property tax dependency with accountable education spending, entrepreneurial support, workforce training and housing, fair taxation, and a small business-friendly state bank.

Reinforced essential programs. Through an equitable tax structure, we need to strengthen programs that serve all Vermonters, including the low-income, young, elderly, and disabled.

I ask for your support on November 6 to continue serving as our state representative.

Please contact me to buy an “I Am Vermont Strong” license plate or for any reason at 58 Hi-Hopes Road, Wardsboro, VT 05355, (802) 896-9408, or via email at

Rep. John Moran
