Vote yes for Killington Forward

Dear Editor,

I am writing to encourage all residents of Killington to vote ‘yes’ on March 7, for Killington forward, Article 5, on the town ballot.

Whether you are a senior citizen, as I am, or a new young family recently settled in our town, Killington Forward will have a profound effect on us and future residents for years to come. 

Clean water, a newly designed Access Road, affordable housing and the new Six Peaks Village are all part of a comprehensive plan to propel us into the future.

With the Resort providing four season recreation, we already attract new business, residents and visitors. With TIF financing and grants to help pay for this new development, we will continue to be one of the top rated Vermont towns. We need to support the hard work and effort  our town officials have put forth to make all of this possible.

Our new ice skating rink was a small step in response to the continuing needs of our community. Now it’s time to take a giant step  by supporting Article 5 and commit to making Killington relevant into the future. It will add to our tax base and promote opportunities for growth in many areas for a long time to come.

I urge you to vote yes for Killington forward, Article 5.

Gerrie Russell,
