Your article on Bruce Lisman (“Lisman gives ‘serious’ thought to gov run,” May 5) left out three very important words.
The first one is “Prosperity.” The name of his group is not registered as “Campaign for Vermont,” but “Campaign for Vermont Prosperity.” I think it is telling that he has omitted letting us know where his organization is really coming from. Perhaps he feels we would make the link between his group and the Koch brothers’ Americans for Prosperity.
The other two words omitted are “Bear Stearns.” If Lisman is counting on his executive talent to do for Vermont what it did for Bear Stearns, for investors and for the American economy, we really, really don’t want him near the governor’s office in any capacity.
