I am writing this letter to the editor in support of Woody Page for Vermont House of Representatives Orleans-2, (Newport, Newport Center, Coventry, Irasburg and a portion of Troy).
Woody was born and raised in Newport, he went to school in Newport and graduated from North Country Union High School and Norwich University before joining the U.S. Air Force attaining the rank of Major before retiring.
Woody has served the people of the United States, Vermont, and Orleans County his entire adult life.
He now wants to continue this tradition by serving us in the Vermont House of Representatives.
Woody Page understands the issues we face, like, out of control spending by the Montpelier liberals as well as their out of control taxing of hard-working Vermonters.
He will also fight to curtail unreasonable regulations which holds back both the expansion of existing businesses here in Vermont, as well as stopping new businesses from relocating here.
During the last biennium, there were 53 Republicans in the Vermont House, that means when the Governor vetoes a bill such as increases taxes, he needed 51 votes to sustain his veto.
This election cycle 17 Republicans are not seeking re-election, the Governor needs at least 51 Republicans to stand strong with him if we are to see taxes stay flat or better yet, reduced.
For all of the reasons I have mentioned, that is why we need Woody Page as our next State Representative in Montpelier.
Woody will work hard every day to represent us in Montpelier, I know he will do an outstanding job for us, and that is why I am voting for Woody Page in next weeks Primary.
I hope you do too.
Representative Gary Viens
