To the Editor:

It is with great enthusiasm I write this letter of endorsement and support for selectboard candidates, Cate Cross and Luce Hillman.

I have known both Shelburne residents for many years and know them to be involved in this community, always willing to jump in when there is a need.

I believe the skills, temperament, and work ethic they will each bring to the selectboard are essential at this time.

Cate is experienced at listening to a variety of viewpoints, asking tough questions, and making sense of chaos. She delves into the essential matters and can help differing perspectives get to the best decisions and conclusions that are possible.

Luce, in her professional world, is the executive director of facilities management at the University of Vermont. She oversees custodial, campus planning, physical plant, transportation and parking, capital projects and the Office of Sustainability. Her approach to problem solving is detailed and meticulous. Her technical knowledge will be critical as our community faces growth and expansion.

I urge you to join me in casting your Select Board votes for Cate Cross and Luce Hillman on March 2 or earlier.

Ballots are ready and voting has begun!

Joan Lenes
