To the Editor:

Congratulations Gov. Phil Scott, you’ve won the primary. You now need to start using that pen to veto ridiculous legislation like the Global Warming Solutions Act, anything that resembles useless gun control, anything that resembles spending money we don’t have, and raising taxes.

The state is hemorrhaging people who have lived here their entire lives because they can no longer afford the onerous overhead that the state government has become. You need to make the Legislature overturn veto after veto, letting the people know who is and will be responsible for the fiscal destruction of this state.

We the people can’t afford to solve the world’s global warming problem until we can solve the huge unfunded pension issue, and get the cost of education and the cost of state government as a whole, under control.

You should take the candidacy of John Klar and the amount of votes he received as a call to get back to your conservative constitutional roots.

Timothy Bullard
