I believe Michael Shank is exactly the kind of leader we need right now. At a time when it feels like the fabric of our society is being torn apart, almost every politician I see is busy talking about whose fault it is. Shank is busy working on how to bring people together to find solutions.
I believe in Shank because he believes in people, and people solve problems. Pre-packaged ideologies don’t solve problems, especially not problems of the magnitude that we are facing right now. Shank is one of the most skillful communicators I have ever met. I’m voting for Michael Shank to represent Rutland County because I believe he will work with his colleagues in Montpelier in a way that builds the trust, respect and positive energy necessary to get things done!
