The Rutland Heraldreports Wilson defeated Rep. Judy Livingston by five votes, 1,230 to 1,225. Livingston told the newspaper she would likely ask for a recount.
Jeff Wilson wants to be State Representative from Manchester. Here’s why: He’s got 26 years of experience in state and local government, 17 as Manchester’s Town Manager. Jeff has been a volunteer for many community organizations – Mark Skinner Library, Junior Instructional Ski Program instructor, to name but two. He has a BA in Political Science and a Masters in Public Administration. Look for Jeff to be tough on the issues that mean so much to all Vermonters: advocate for conservation/efficiency and carbon-free renewable energy-based future; supporter of open space preservation and environment protection; supporter of making a much-needed investment in infrastructure;advocate to ensure the VT Yankee plant must be found safe and reliable if it is to continue; and effective health care reform.
I will work hard as your Representative to boldly and energetically address the very tough problems that lie ahead.I am ready to make a policy break with the past, because many of the old ways of doing business simply won’t work, he told Vermont.com.
This message is approved by his Emma, his unofficial campaign advisor and dog. Jeff would have approved this message, too, had we asked him. You see, Vermont.com is headquartered here in Manchester. We know this fellow well.
