Thanks to AOT for water rescue

BRATTLEBORO — I extend sincere gratitude to the seven-member crew from the Agency of Transportation (Brattleboro, Springfield, and Jamaica garages) who recently saved two young women in fast-moving water in Jamaica.

This team - Shawn Westney, Andrew Fraser, John Bedard, Victoria Biller, Josh Donna, Kevin Munson, and Tim Bills - was fully prepared, took quick action, and utilized training skills and instinct to help the two women out of the West River safely.

Thank you to these hard-working state employees for this action, and for all that you and your colleagues at AOT do for the safety of Vermonters and those visiting our beautiful state.
