Letters to the Editor

To the Editor,
As a volunteer member of the political committee of the Vermont chapter of the Sierra Club I am very pleased to have been able to participate in the process to endorse David Zuckerman for Lieutenant Governor. We also endorsed him in 2016.

To the Editor,
It was at the 11th hour, of the 11th day, of the 11th month, 100 years ago in 1918 that World War I, “the war to end all wars,” ended. It is with honor that we as a nation stand together every year on November 11, to recognize the women and men who fought for freedom and for...

To the Editor,
It’s discouraging that in the year 2018 I find myself telling constituents that, as president of the Vermont Senate, I will do whatever it takes to protect Vermont women’s right to choose. But in light of the new United States Supreme Court majority that’s what I’ve said to...
