Beth Pearce combines two crucial qualities that make her the best candidate for Vermont state treasurer: experience and good judgment.
Many candidates for public office hope they will rise to meet the challenges of the moment; with Beth Pearce we have a proven leader who has faced the crisis of Tropical Storm Irene and responded with intelligent fiscal leadership. As a caring and careful steward, she made sure child support recipients and retirees received their checks without interruption, tax deadlines were extended and local highway aid and education payments were accelerated.
Hired as deputy treasurer in 2003, Beth Pearce has served a full term as state treasurer for Gov. Peter Shumlin and brings a non-partisan, cool-headed, and matter-of-fact composure to the job, along with a tremendous work ethic.
I hope voters will recognize a sincere public servant and vote for Beth Pearce for state treasurer this November.
