Governor Douglas Endorses Turner

To the editor,

As a former state representative, secretary of state, state treasurer and governor, I’ve worked with many elected officials in Vermont. High among them is Representative Don Turner-a true public servant by any standard.

I first met Don when I was filling a vacancy for state representative from Milton. I remember interviewing him for the position, and I was incredibly impressed with his deep dedication to his community — including serving as a volunteer firefighter for his entire adult life. I knew right away that I’d met a dedicated, practical and common-sense leader with a bright future ahead.

I gladly appointed Don to the House. Since then, he has been elected six times overwhelmingly. He has risen through the ranks to House minority leader, where he’s been the voice of reason, helping Gov. Scott put the brakes on excessive spending and taxes. Don is truly committed to focusing on our state’s economic challenges and making Vermont affordable.

As town manager of Milton, Don has brought his problem-solving skills to a managerial level, where he’s helped lead his community forward. Whether it’s in his home town or under the Golden Dome, he’s always focused on building bridges and getting things done.

We need this type of leadership in Montpelier, which is why I’m proud to endorse Don Turner for lieutenant governor. I hope you’ll join me in voting for Don on Nov. 6.

 

Gov. Jim Douglas

Middlebury, Vt.
