Steve Carr is running for the House of Representatives for the towns of Brandon, Sudbury and Pittsford. I’ve known Steve for only 20 years. All of you who are lifelong Vermonters in the area have known him all his life and know him as first a family man and second a businessman.
Steve is a smart, savvy and hard-working guy who believes he can make a positive difference in the politics that concern us citizens of the three town district in a bipartisan manner. I believe we citizens have an opportunity to elect a man whose integrity and sense of fairness follow in the tradition of a man who represented us for so many years, Bob Wood.
A vote for Steve is a vote to make our wants and needs known in the Legislature and have them acted on with a fair and positive outcome.
Come Nov. 6 vote for Steve and put a Carr in the House.
