To The Editor:

Waitsfield voters:

Connectivity is the key to effective local government. In the three-way select board race there is the option to vote a candidate who is truly engaged in the community and makes decisions based on facts with the future of our town in mind -- Christine Sullivan. In her 12 years of school board work Christine has been an advocate for financial responsibility, pedestrian safety and excellence in our schools. She has shepherded building projects and negotiated difficult issues related to the consolidation of the school district. She does not shy away from complex and emotional issues -- she meets them with reason and compassion.

Christine has demonstrated her commitment to the community and her family time and again and deserves your vote.
