Letter: Raining and pouring

Raining and pouring

Editor of the Reformer:

When it rains it pours. Unlike the presidential election, where we have the usual suspects to vote for, better known as "the lesser of two evils," here in Vermont we have a slate of candidates in the gubernatorial and lieutenant gubernatorial election where actual choices are necessary. That means we have to make up our minds by the Aug. 9 primary.

It is a stimulating experience to see the political landscape populated with qualified candidates. So stimulating, in fact, that I am aroused and enthusiastic but my usual working environment of decision-making is hampered by more than one good choice.

Nevertheless, Aug. 9 will be here before we know it and if you can vote early, do so. At least that means you've carefully considered the qualities of each candidate and are making an intelligent decision.

I read somewhere that "Bad politicians are elected by good people who don't vote." But that doesn't happen in Vermont, does it?
