"Facts matter! It was disappointing to read the letter in last week's paper falsely accusing Heidi Scheuermann of not supporting the pregnancy accommodations bill.

In fact, Heidi did support and voted in favor of the bill. More importantly, just as she has done throughout her years in the House, she fought to ensure the bill in its final version was a sound one. She saw significant flaws in the bill as it was proposed and passed the House, but she worked with the attorney general’s office and worked to be sure it was modified in the Senate. When that was done, Heidi felt confident that the bill was sound public policy and supported it.

All of this information is out there and readily available. Heidi wrote to her constituents in depth about the issue in April 2017, outlining the entire process in this particular bill. The accuser in last week’s paper, I’m afraid, simply chose to ignore those facts.

In this day and age with so much political division and character assassination, it is upsetting to see it come to an election in Stowe. Heidi is open and honest about her record and about where she stands on issues.

I am not a Republican or a Democrat. I do not vote party lines, I vote for the best person and I am proud to support Heidi because the independent, thoughtful and experienced voice she brings to Montpelier on our behalf is precisely what we need at this time."

"Stowe is lucky to have Heidi Scheuermann as its representative.  She is a great asset to our town, and really knows what she is doing."

"Heidi is a truly independent thinker, often to the frustration of her party leaders, as she never gave her vote on a purely partisan basis.  She is know for working across the aisle, being an expert in Vermont's commerce industry, especially tourism, and working to replace Act 60/68 with a rational and understandable education funding mechanism.

It would be extremely difficult for the people of Stowe to find a more respected and effective legislator than Heidi Scheuermann."
