    Brock for governor

    Randy Brock is a decorated Vietnam War veteran, having served in the U.S. Army during a very challenging time in our country. As a decorated veteran of the war in Iraq and a retired member of the Vermont Army National Guard, I can fully support a candidate with the personal character that reflects established qualities of leadership, initiative, integrity and selfless service.

    If Randy is elected our next governor, he will be the first Vermont governor since Dick Snelling to have served in the military. Considering the importance of being commander in chief of our Vermont National Guard, I think that it is important for us to consider putting in a veteran to that post. We have asked a lot of our National Guard and their families, especially over the last 11 years. From serving the call of our nation by fighting terrorism overseas to assisting in flood relief efforts at home, our National Guard is always there for Vermonters.

    It’s important to me that the governor of Vermont has walked in their same boot prints of service and possesses the proven credentials to be an effective and successful leader of our Guardsmen and our great state. I am asking that you please consider voting for Randy Brock on Nov. 6.
