    I write to thank you, the people of Rutland County, for having such faith in me over the past six years. It has been such a privilege to represent you in the Vermont state Senate — an honor and pleasure. Every time I walked into the Capitol, I was awestruck with that honor, as though it were the first time — what a place to work! It is hard to explain how meaningful these years have been to me.

    I made the very hard decision over these last few weeks. I wish it could have been different. In the end, I felt that given my back and ankle problems I wouldn’t be able to keep up the pace necessary in Montpelier and that someone else would serve Rutland County better than I could. Other than the pain in my back and ankle, I think I am in great shape. A lot of soul-searching went into my decision, but in the end this one seemed to make the most sense.

    Because of the honor of representing you, I have made many friends both in this community and in Montpelier, and I know that I’ll continue to see you. I plan on staying very active in the community.

    Again, I thank you for the faith and honor you placed in me.
