BRATTLEBORO — I support Elizabeth McLoughlin's election to the Brattleboro Selectboard.
Liz came to Brattleboro more than 15 years ago as a professional environmental town planner. She quickly immersed herself in town issues, joining the Planning Commission and working with the Drop-In Center (now Groundworks). She has also been an active member of multiple town committees and commissions.
Three years ago, the Brattleboro Outing Club was required to apply for an Act 250 permit to establish its current cross-country ski hut. Liz spent countless hours helping the club successfully wade through the permit process. Her help was indispensable.
For the past four years, Liz has served Brattleboro as a member of the Selectboard, as clerk, vice chair, and chair. During this time, she has developed an in-depth understanding of how our town works.
Her re-election will allow her to continue to apply her wisdom and energy in tackling the complex issues facing Brattleboro.
