Charlotte’s Ed Stone announces candidacy

Ed Stone will run in the November 2014 election as a Republican for the seat of Vermont State House of Representatives District 0-4.

“My commitment to Charlotte/Hinesburg and my experience on the Charlotte Selectboard make me uniquely qualified for this position,” candidate Stone said.

“Charlotte and Hinesburg deserve an effective and independent leader in the General Assembly, and I will provide that. Vermont is a wonderful state and the residents of District 0-4, both homeowners and businesses, continue to struggle with the tax burden we bear each year,” he continued. “Much of that burden comes from Montpelier decisions. Legislators have to be aware of this and must be able to work towards finding comprehensive, thoughtful solutions so we can all afford our homes and continue to do business here. We owe this to our next generation to afford them with the town we grew up in.”
