Don Turner will be an outstanding Lieutenant Governor. We are very fortunate to have a person
of Don’s caliber willing to serve the people of Vermont.
Over the last four years, I have gotten to know Don very well as we both served in the Vermont
legislature. Don is a consensus builder and a natural leader. He is an effective communicator as
well as a good listener. He is a man of unquestionable integrity.
Don has incredible energy. In addition to serving in the legislature he owns a real estate business
and has been a member of the Milton Fire Department for 34 years. Since 2004, he has served as
the Chief of Milton’s Fire and Rescue Departments. Earlier this year, he stepped down as Chief
to become Milton’s Town Manager. In the four years I have served with him, Don demonstrated
the ability to multi-task.
The two most important issues to Don are 1) making Vermont affordable and 2) growing our
economy. He understands that we need to reduce property taxes, which impacts both renters and
home owners. He is an advocate for building more affordable housing. If taxes are not reduced
and affordable housing is not available, it is going to be a challenge to attract young adults to
move here. Don also knows that unless we grow our economy, we are not going to generate
suffient tax revenues to fund existing programs for the less fortunate, much less, institute new
Please join me in voting for Don Turner as Lieutenant Governor. He assuredly will contribute to
the well-being of all Vermonters
