actually, monte would probably look at cutting bloated staff and budgets even further. Trieber is trying to make friends in town hall. if trieber wins, we'll definitely have another election. more money from taxpayers would be a trieber win.

Is Trieber running for the 3 year seat so he can more money from the Revolving Fund for his partner?

I beg the voters of Rockingham to elect Monty to the board, I really have a dam I need to sell. Monty did a lot of good things for the town...but he needs to be truthful, how much did this dam deal actually cost us taxpayers ??

I believe the 4 people running have the interests of the area foremost in their thoughts. If you run for public office you should, right? I plan to vote for Stefan Golec because I have found him to be upfront and honest every time I have dealt with him.

james -- CPAC

Tomorrow is Primary Election Day in Vermont.

Have you set aside a few minutes to vote tomorrow?

Confirm your polling location -- and VOTE TOMORROW before polls close at 7 p.m..

Working and fighting together, we've accomplished so much. We've enacted tough Wall Street reform, a landmark health care bill that brings us closer than ever to achieving universal coverage, equal pay for equal work, and so much more.

But our work is not finished.

Please don't forget to vote tomorrow, if you haven't already sent in your ballot early. So much is at stake.

Thank you.

Sincerely,

Patrick Leahy
U.S. Senator

P.S. Marcelle and I hope you will join us for the Unity Rally that will take place at noon on Wednesday, August 25 at 1 Main Street in Burlington. This is our chance to rally behind our nominees and get the general election off to a strong start.

Michael LaLiberte thank you for helping on the census and while you might have had good interaction with Stefan Golec briefly many in the town donít share your views on him.

Who is going to fill Treibor's other seat if he wins? Or Stephan's seat on the trustee board? More elections to follow, I guess.

Whitey agrees. Why put in one of the guys who helped create the highest taxed village/town in Vermont??? Time for a new guy to have the opportunity to change things for the better or screw it up as good as the other three have.

I'm voting for Matt Trieber, because he'll tell you where he stands on any given issue and why.

The other way I'm looking at it is a choice between more of the same, and a fresh perspective. That's an easy choice for me.

Matt Threiber, if he wins, will hold a 3-year seat instead of a 1-year seat. Then, the board will have to appoint someone to fill his 1-year term until March. At the March election another person will have to run for that 1-year term. Stefan does not lose his seat on the BF Trustee board because the village board is totally independent of the town board. BF is a village onto itself. Rockingham is a town onto itself. He would serve on both boards.

Stefan serving on both boards is very scary. Stfan needs to step down , he makes the same promises every time he runs.

Stefan you are a coward ,you have never cut a budget, you are all talk. After 20 years you have accomplished nothing.

Thank god for all the Pollocks voting you in.Other wise you wouldn't win. Stefan quit telling lies and sneaking around. Get done you are alll washed up.

What does Trieber stand for? Moving forward? What else? Restoring municipal jobs?

Trieber is committed to using economic development as a means of increasing the town's tax base. The single most important issue for me is the local economy, and I'm voting for the guy with a realistically positive attitude about the future that goes beyond merely the next budget.

I agree with Ben Long Matt is right upfront with his ideas and looks at the long term solutions.He also answers any questions you might call him about to discuss and he is very intelligent.

I asked him should he get elected who would he like to see appointed to his remaining term and with no hesitation he said Divoll. and why, Link is a gentlemen and he could work well with him.

We all know the other two Amigos quite well after 45 years on the boards and our wallets also.

The 2 top Democrats heads have for the past few weeks been conducting a will of the wisp campaignalong with BOOOOOB. Shame shame shame should be your theme song when doing your Dressy Bessie routine in Largo Fl. with the 3 Condo owners.

Why would anyone run for political office anywhere?

Other than greed and ego,that is....For sincere office seekers, it can't possibly be worth it....

Just sayin...
