To the Editor:
Voting in an election is a privilege and a responsibility. Voting
for Sen. Jane Kitchel (D-Caledonia-Orange) is also an honor! Sen.
Kitchel's track record in the Vermont Senate and in her professional
career clearly show that she is a person we must return to the Vermont
Senate. From her role as secretary of the Agency for Health and
Human Services to her appointment during her first term to vice
chairwoman of the most powerful Senate committee, the Appropriations
Committee, Kitchel has shown time and time again to be the champion
of the people of Vermont.
As a Vermont
dairy farmer, I have found Sen. Kitchel to be easily accessible,
well respected among all her colleagues and most capable of cutting
through bureaucratic red-tape to reach a solution to a problem.
Each time I have contacted Kitchel she has responded immediately,
followed through on each and every detail of a request for assistance
and kept me in the loop of all correspondence on a particular matter
of concern. From my concerns as a farmer, to environmental questions
and Act 250 to requests for information on elder care options Kitchel
has proven to me that we need her expertise, energy and enthusiasm
in Vermont's Senate!
