I have known Laura Sibilia for many years, personally and professionally. I was impressed with her leadership, as the head of the Mt Snow Valley Chamber of Commerce. Laura did an excellent job moving the Chamber forward and always represented the best interest of the business owners in our community. After Hurricane Irene, Laura delayed starting her new job to assist the cleanup efforts in the Valley because of her commitment to the community. Working with BDCC & SeVEDS, Laura remains visible and active in Southern Vermont economic development. I do not know Laura’s position on many political topics, but I do know she will represent her constituents to the best of her ability and not have her own agenda.
Laura’s organization and knowledge of businesses and residents of southern Vermont, her understanding of state funding, grant writing, and taxation is impressive. She has taken strong positions as a member of the Dover School Board on education tax reform. Most importantly, Laura is never afraid to express her opinion, something which I feel is often lacking in Montpelier. She won’t let Montpelier forget Windham/ Bennington is part of Vermont – she knows the needs and she visibly supports our causes.
I am not a resident of Windham/Bennington district so I cannot vote for Laura, but as a business owner in Dover and a tax payer I want to express my support of Laura Sibilia for State Representative and I hope that you will give her your vote on November 4th.
