I am writing to encourage you to consider voting for Ruth Hagerman for selectboard.

I have known Ruth for five years, serving together on the Library Board of Trustees and on the Library and Town Center Project. During that time, I have come to appreciate her as a hard-working, sensible and thoughtful contributor to the town.

I believe that Ruth would be an asset to our current selectboard. Her background as a scientist has taught her to approach topics in an unbiased but questioning fashion. She knows how to compromise with others and is skilled at bringing a group together to get things done.

Shelburne is a popular place for people to live and many new residents will be coming in over the next few years. Ruth believes that we need to continue to build a warm and welcoming community, increase connectivity and transportation options, watch out for our natural resources and plan for an uncertain climate future.

Early voting for Town Meeting begins Feb. 12. I hope that you will join me in casting your vote for Ruth Hagerman!
