Board elects leaders3/19/09

March 19, 2009

The Selectboard has re-elected Terry Macaig as chairman and Jeff Fehrs as vice chairman.

At its March 9 session, the five-member board voted unanimously to maintain the existing leadership.

Fehrs is the longest-serving board member, having been on the board since 1998 and a vice chairman for the past three years. He works for the Vermont Department of Environmental Conservation.

Macaig has served for seven years on the Selectboard and for three years as its chairman. He is a retired state employee who also represents Williston in the Vermont House.

Macaig said it is “not a problem” juggling his legislative duties with the extra work that comes with chairing the Selectboard.

Williston’s town charter requires the Selectboard to elect a chair and a vice chair each year.

    I am writing in response to Mr. Hoxworth’s article on transportation costs for the poor in Vermont. I would like to suggest further research on this topic before we simply just give another handout or tax credit. The poor, may, have a higher disproportionate burden on their transportation costs than the wealthier residents of Vermont; however, they also have a lower disproportionate burden on taxes and housing. Pick your evil.
    We can simply just give every poor Vermonter an energy efficient car, gas card, free tuition, renter’s rebate, etc.…but the only way out of poverty is through the combination of education, hard work, and discipline. Education and degrees are not handed out or purchased; a person has to EARN them. This seems to be the only way out of poverty—sorry, there are no shortcuts.
    If we continue this trend of enabling, our entire state will be a welfare state.
