Tarrant: Article 22 more about Handmaid’s Tale than women’s rights

Kathi Tarrant

To the editor:

My fellow Vermonters, As I said to myself and others in recent weeks, regardless of outcome, I will continue in good faith to promote a better understanding as to what constitutes good government.

Since I recognize energy for what it can do to help mankind instead of how it is causing climate catastrophe, I would encourage factoring in our mastering ability. Putting profit before human flourishing has no place at the table. While an established goal in Vermont re: affordability along with infrastructure in advancing energy alternatives remains unclear, I wish you well in dealings with the willfully ignorant, defamers, fact-checkers, and/or various other three-letter-agencies; in advancing their objectives; in favoring those who clearly exhibit signs of malfeasance. 

Article 22 has nothing to do with a woman’s right. It has everything to do with a Handmaid’s Tale. 

In the end, We The People deserve accountability and transparency from our elected officials. With that said, I will continue my quest to promote that which upholds the general welfare as exemplified in the US Constitution. Thank-you for your vote! 

Kathi Tarrant, candidate for the Vermont House of Representatives/Washington-Chittenden District 

The author, a Republican and first-time candidate, received 1,048 votes, finishing third to incumbent Democrats Theresa Wood and Tom Stevens. The two-seat district covers Waterbury and smaller towns.

  1. She certainly understand, better than most, the role of energy and fossil fuels in our lives and civilization. Vermont seems to be in a utopian dream which when it ends will find us much poorer if not wiser.
