I’m writing to express my support for Jaime Heins in his run for the Selectboard. He represents exactly the kind of leadership Shelburne sorely needs right now: a thoughtful, engaged listener who brings out the best in others and finds consensus on the policy and fiscal issues that affect every single one of us.
He is level-headed and even-handed, an indisputable bridge-builder focused solely on collaborative solutions.
As parents of young children growing up together, he and I have spoken at length about our hopes for the future of our town, about how our kids will look back on their experience growing up here in Shelburne. He understands the challenges we face as well as the opportunities we have. He is utterly and unquestionably committed to our finest future.
Also, as a sitting Selectboard member, he’s already up to speed and ready to hit the ground running. Having only been appointed late last year, he deserves the opportunity to continue to serve on the Selectboard. More importantly, Shelburne deserves the opportunity to have the smart and passionate leadership that Jaime Heins represents.
I wholeheartedly support Jaime Heins, and I hope you’ll do the same.
