|Info||My wife Mary Ann and I have lived in Barre Town for the past thirty-seven years. Our three children attended Barre Town schools, inspiring my earliest service to Barre Town with 3 terms on the School Board. Participating in the School Board sparked my interest in taking a more active leadership role in my community. Since then, I have gone on to serve on local and statewide boards and committees to contribute to the discussion and implementation of action related to the environment, education, agriculture, economic development, employment and workforce training. At the present time I am beginning my third term on the Barre Town Selectboard, currently serving as Chairperson. |
We, in Barre Town, are blessed to live in such a beautiful area of Vermont. To preserve this quality of life, we'll have to face some serious issues in the coming years. Our representatives in the legislature will need to address: maintaining our road system; cost and quality of education; disposal of solid waste; energy sources and costs; access to quality health care and affordable prescription drugs; and economic development policies to meet the needs of business, industry and the workforce while protecting the environment.
My experience in the community and in 37 years of leadership positions for the state has prepared me to help Barre Town face these issues on a local and statewide level.
