Morse said the 1983 session will probably be or. of the most challenging he has ever served in. His committee positions will be "a great help in working with these legislative changes." Morse also said, "Agriculture will have some very important changes, and our finances will have to be adjusted to cope with the new demands at state and local levels. Highway and traffic will make changes to comply with the new five year high- way plan and the study being made on truck weights and registration will have to be dealt with." Gerald has been a resident of Groton since 1930. He served as selectman of the town for 27 )'ears. He and his wife Hazel are very active in church and community ac- tivities.

He said, "Vermont is a small state with limited resources and the great challenge will he to con- tinue to support quality education, maintain its transportation system and a sound agriculture and business environment." His interests are reflected in his ap- peintments as chairman of key committees, including three terms as Chairman of the House Transportation Committee. In 1981 The General Assembly elected him. for  si.y.a, r term to the Board of "rusteeh of:the Universit.y of Vermont. The' Vermont League of Cities and Towns honored him with the. Distinguished Legislative Service to Local Government award.

But nothing wrenches your heart more than to go into places in Orleans and Essex Counties and towns like Island Pond where you can talk to parents who know that as soon as their children grow up and get an education those kids will have to move away because there are no opportunities open to them in their hometowns." , Energy Issues A number of candidates had some interesting things to say on the subject of energy. Wayne Kenyon of Bradford said that, if reelected, he would introduce new legislation in the House that would add two members to the three-member Public Service Board. All the candidates, except Gerald Morse, were critical of recent events surrounding utility rate hikes in the state. The PSB is a quasi-judicial board that sets rates for the electrical monopolies in the state and which acts on other public matters. Morse staunchly supported the utilities saying, "I have a lot of faith in a lot of people no one else has any faith in." All the candidates were sup- porters, at least last Wed- nesday, of a nuclear arms freeze. No candidate at the public outing supported the state's handling of nuclear waste shipments through the state. All the candidates said they were opposed to additional increases in Vermont's sales tax.

The jobs resulting from this broader economic base would restore the proud independent spirit characteritistic of our Ver- mont heritage." To ac- complish this, Stowe says that Vermont needs "responsive and responsible represen- tation."
