Vermonters have a wonderful opportunity this fall to elect a woman with impeccable credentials for state treasurer. We need to send Wendy Wilton to Montpelier so she can do for the state what she has done for Rutland.
When Wendy was elected Rutland City treasurer in 2007, she inherited a $5 million deficit and helped turn it around to a $3.8 million positive fund balance. She’s produced the first “clean” audit the city has seen in 32 years. In short, she’s a woman who gets things done effectively. Find out more about her at wendywilton.org.
Vermont has serious fiscal challenges ahead. From revamping our health care to the $3 billion in state unfunded liabilities, now is certainly not the time to rubber stamp or shrink from our challenges. Wendy Wilton’s proven track record of accomplishment is just what the doctor should order this November. She will shine the light on the state’s finances.
