General: (political statement of goals, objectives, views, philosophies)
I have always taken a strong interest in my community, and more significantly, its children. After co-founding a pre-school, reviving a cub scout program, coaching several school sports teams, and serving on the local school board, I became the school librarian. I stayed in that position for 21 years, and upon retirement established a mentoring program for local students.
Having majored in Sociology, I have always wanted to take a look at issues from a broader perspective. During my career, I was drawn to work on numerous committees and boards that worked to address larger missions and professional goals. It is this work that leads me to believe that I will be a good representative working toward changes that positively affect our lives here in Vermont. I enjoy the collaborative problem-solving process, and will listen to all aspects of an issue before moving forward to decisive action.
My district schools are experiencing low enrollments and high per pupil costs. This is becoming a challenge that threatens strong programs. I believe the first front in facing this issue is not in funding formulas or plans for consolidation, but instead lies in the need for job creation. Vermont needs to try some innovative approaches to attract clean small industry that will fit our protective environment and provide both hands-on and managerial work. Vermont needs to have a vibrant mix of young people and families, and I hope to build opportunities for them.
