Oscar Heller, running for a one-year seat on the Brattleboro Selectboard, has shown to be a steady advocate for climate and environmental issues for the town.
He strikes me as very aware of the larger picture on the issues that come before the board. He is thoughtful, considerate, an attentive listener, and articulate in his beliefs and thoughts.
He has been active on the Town Finance Committee. He has a clear grasp of the budget and the ways it can be put together. He is aware of tax-rate issues while advocating for more decisive action on climate and sustainability issues.
I think he would be a strong addition to the Selectboard.
