    Treasurer Beth Pearce solved immediate problems for Vermont towns after Irene. Here’s how.

    Beth released millions of dollars to towns through early payments. She also allowed towns a short deferment on payments due to the state. Beth’s actions helped towns with cash management. The cash allowed us to continue to expensive work of recovery by building bridges and repairing roads.

    As treasurer, Beth has kept Vermont’s financial affairs healthy. We have a AAA bond rating. As towns went to banks and bond issues for funding, we benefited from the strengthened position that Beth cultivated for us. Unlike the financial straights that other states and nations faces, Vermonters can go to a bank knowing that money is available for us. And banks know that we will pay it back.

    Beth Pearce has demonstrated to Vermonters she is a stalwart steward of our finances. For this reason, she has earned my vote on Nov. 6.
