Re-Elect Reps. Marcotte and Young

To the Editor:

The Northeast Kingdom sends many fine legislators to Montpelier. As Chair of the House Commerce and Economic Development Committee I would like to recommend two for re-election who serve on the Committee. One is the Vice Chair of the Committee, Rep. Michael Marcotte from Coventry. Mike is a veteran lawmaker and deeply knowledgeable on business issues. The other is Rep. Sam Young from Albany, a newcomer who brings great broadband expertise and also serves on the Board of the Vermont Telecommunications Authority.

Both are hard workers and can always be relied on to do their full share of the committee's work. We review bills on economic development, banking, insurance, telecommunications, consumer protection and utility issues. Both Representative Marcotte and Young are recognized and respected for their fair consideration of the issues and their ability to find compromises acceptable to all parties. They are a pleasure to work with and I hope you will support both of them in their re-elections.

Rep. Bill Botzow
