Wilton’s strong record in Rutland
As a longtime Vermonter and independent voter, I have had the opportunity to support Democrats and Republicans alike. I am a strong believer in voting for the right person, not the party affiliation. I supported Wendy Wilton when she ran for Rutland City treasurer in 2007.
Our city was in deep financial distress, as those of us who live here well remember. As treasurer, Wendy has been a great financial steward of the city. I encourage my fellow voters from across our state to support Wendy Wilton in her run for state treasurer. I am sure that with her knowledge and dedication, she will work as hard for our whole state as she worked for our fair city of Rutland.
I have had friends say they don’t want to lose Wendy from Rutland, to the point that they may not support her as a statewide candidate. I think that’s a mistake. I believe she will be leaving our city in very good hands. We have a very strong team in the treasurer’s office and a very good assistant treasurer in James Manning. I also know she put the NEMRC (Rutland’s) accounting system in place, which will be maintained by the staff.
Voters of Vermont would be wise to elect Wendy. She is smart, honest, and effective. She will provide our state legislators with accurate and relevant information with which to make sound fiscal decisions.
