Endorsing Hansen for lieutenant governor

To the editor,

We are writing this letter as an enthusiastic endorsement of Meg Hansen for lieutenant governor of Vermont. We have known Meg Hansen for several years and are  impressed with her knowledge of the concerns facing all Vermonters. Hansen is a tenacious researcher, a gifted speaker, writer and a honest and compassionate woman.  She will bring these skills and attributes to the job. Hansen will be a staunch advocate for fiscal responsibility and proper constitutional governance in our statehouse.  Vermonters will find no greater ally in defending small business, entrepreneurs, economic freedom and bringing prosperity to Vermont. Hansen also understands the importance of self governance through local democratically elected school boards. Our small rural schools are at the heart of our communities. We have all witnessed the devastating financial and moral effects of Act 46. Hansen will fight against the overbearing and unnecessary over-reach of an out-of-control education bureaucracy. Please join us in voting for Meg Hansen in the Republican primary.

Sincerely,

Stuart and Michele Lindberg, Cavendish
