I am running for State Representative for the City of Barre. I am a conservative first and a Republican second. I am Not a RINO ( Republican In Name Only). Please vote for me on Tuesday August 9 in the Republican Primary.
Raised in Barre – I was born and raised in Barre City. My entire childhood I lived on Academy Street, numbers 3, 7 and 5 in that order. We lived on Academy Street because my family operated and then owned Hooker & Whitcomb Funeral Home. After graduating from Spaulding High School, I joined the Navy. In 1983, I completed my 5 year commitment and was honorably discharged.
After being home for two years I got the itch to travel again and moved to Florida. While in Florida I became an ocean lifeguard and had the opportunity to save people’s lives from drowning.
In Recovery – After about five years in Florida, I returned to Vermont. Monday morning, October 15, 1990 I came to and realized I had a problem with alcohol and that I could not fix myself. I prayed to God for help and haven’t had a drink since. I pray every day and I continue to ask God for help and I ask him how I can help those who are similarly afflicted.
Show biz career, education – In 1994 I moved to Santa Monica California to follow a dream to become an actor. After a year and a half of acting classes and working for six months, I qualified to join as a member of the Screen Actor’s Guild. I did background acting work in commercials, soap operas, TV shows and movies; stand in work in TV shows; stunt work in movies and speaking parts in soap operas. Also during this time I would do painting and carpentry work as well. In 2014 I decided to go to college full time for the first time ever. In 2016 I graduated with an Associates Degree in General Science and in 2018 graduated with an Associates Degree in Liberal Arts. Both degrees came from Santa Monica College in Santa Monica California. While there I also completed one semester of Respiratory Therapy.
In July of 2019 I moved back home to Barre, and I am never moving away from Vermont again. Shortly after moving back home I joined the Barre American Legion and in 2020 I was voted to the Executive Committee as the 3rd Officer at Large and currently still hold this position. Recently I became the liaison between the Barre American Legion and the Post 10 Legion Baseball Team.
Barre City is my hometown and I love my hometown. I want to help make Barre City the best version of Barre City that Barre City can be. That is why I am running for State Representative for Barre City.
No to new taxes, yes to law and order – I will never vote yes to raise taxes or create new taxes for Barre City. I will do everything in my power to keep government from expanding. We don’t need more taxes, we need to stop spending our tax dollars recklessly. Taxes are to be spent on streets, sidewalks and bridges. If we curb the reckless spending, we will positively affect inflation.
I believe in peace and prosperity through law and order. We need more police officers and school resource officers. We must enforce existing laws before we start making new ones. With more police we can enforce our laws, reduce crime and reduce the drug problems in our city and across Vermont.
I look forward to hearing from you. I’m on Facebook under Brian Alan Judd, and my email is firstname.lastname@example.org, my phone number is 839-9985. Please reach out to me and let me know what I can do for you if I am elected to be a State Representative for the City of Barre. Please vote for me in the primary election on Tuesday August 9, 2022.
