I am writing this note in support of George Schiavone who has chosen to run for the District 5-2 seat in the Vermont House of Representatives. I have known George for over 30 years. He is one of the most unique individuals I have had the pleasure of knowing. He is bright, inquisitive, informed, and has the proven ability to work extremely well with others from across the aisle in order to make decisions that are a benefit to all Vermonters.
Outside activities include hiking, bicycle riding, and skiing, as well as actively volunteering in service to our community and to the homeless. He has run several marathons including New York and Boston. I include this information to demonstrate that he is both mentally and physically active and would have the energy to represent our district extremely well.
I have no hesitation in endorsing George Schiavone. He will serve us well.
Charles R. Bowen, Shelburne
