To the editor: Bock’s qualifications for state rep ‘impressive’

I’d like to share with you the reasons why I’m supporting Tom Bock for Democratic state representative representing Andover, Baltimore, Chester and North Springfield.

Letter to the editor logo2I’ve had the opportunity to serve with Tom on the Regional Planning Commission board for the past year and a half, where he is currently the chair. His qualifications are impressive with a wealth of experience in both the public and private sectors.

Tom understands how important the economy of Springfield is to the overall success of the region. I believe that he will be a strong voice in Montpelier and fight for the assistance that is needed to get Springfield on the road to becoming the economic powerhouse it once was.

In addition to economic issues, Tom is also focused on many other things that are important to Springfield. He believes that it’s time to confront opiate addiction, simplify the Vermont health care system, ensure fair wages and equal job opportunities for all Vermonters, and develop a realistic strategy for addressing school funding and the property tax crisis.

I know that Tom will be a real partner working with Springfield and its residents to reach our goal of becoming a community that is prosperous, and an attractive place to live and visit. I encourage you to vote for Tom Bock for state representative in the Democratic primary on Tuesday, Aug. 9. You can also vote early by requesting an absentee ballot at Town Hall.
