Please support Tim Ryan’s bid to represent Addison-2 in the Vermont House. Tim is an Independent, free of Party & corporate control, accountable only to We the People. A native Vermonter, Tim hails from Leicester, runs a paint contracting business, and has served as selectman for his Town.
I feel that an Independent is in our best interests. Shoreham went Independent, and now have Will Stevens, a representative who works hard for the people of Shoreham. Will remains accountable. How do you feel about the accountability issue?
Have you heard Tim’s public opposition to the new Sales Tax on Services? Can our small businesses really afford to stay in business, after paying an additional six percent? Check out last week’s Addison Chamber of Commerce Candidate’s forum.
According to the Addison Independent, ‘Ryan said he would support policies to better aid small businesses. He added he would seek to contain increases in the state budget and would advocate for “reorganizing” administration of Vermont’s public school system.
‘“We have 61 supervisory unions in 14 counties in the state,” Ryan said. “We have three supervisory unions in Addison County. I think there’s some overlap there. These are the cost-cutting measures that have to happen. We can’t just keep on raising the state budget forever.”’
The Addison-2 incumbent serves in a Party leadership role that leaves no time for local citizen concerns. He has supported tax increases against business and working people, give-aways to corporations and an ever-increasing, unsustainable budget. The handouts from DC that prop up this house of cards are drying up: we need new thinking in Montpelier.
Whatever your opinion of the incumbent’s record, please consider Tim Ryan. Next legislative session, Tim will be doing Addison-2 work in Montpelier exclusively.
