Our state funds need wise management, and that is why we should support Beth Pearce for state treasurer this year.
In fact, Pearce is already our state treasurer, and she has come through for all Vermonters. Our state has maintained its excellent bond rating, higher than any other state in New England. This reduces borrowing costs for our towns and also makes it easier for state agencies to lend to businesses, students and homeowners. It also meant that towns could get aid more quickly in the aftermath of Hurricane Irene.
Beth Pearce loves and excels in accounting. She is a true public servant who will not politicize the job, but help us all get the most out of our state funds. We should elect Beth Pearce as state treasurer so that she can continue to serve all Vermonters.
