  1. I truly am tempted to apply. Not only to see how the process is currently administered, but to be an advocate for providing all Vermont parents a ‘tuition voucher’ to let them choose the school, public or independent, that they believe best meets the needs of their children. But I don’t want to waste my time jousting with windmills either. Hopefully, another School Choice advocate will throw their hat in the ring. Liz Cady would be a great candidate.

    • You’d do a good job, Jay. I do know that the Essex school district already has someone on the state board (Kim Gleason). Let me know how it works out.
