LETTERS TO THE EDITOR: School board thanks voters

The Williston School Board would like to express a sincere “thank you” to the entire Williston community for their support of the school budget. Your active involvement and frank and open discussion were very valuable and we greatly appreciate it. Our schools can now begin the necessary preparation efforts that will allow us to be ready for a successful 2013-2014 school year.

— Giovanna Boggero on behalf of the Williston School Board

    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.
