IBM attack

To the editor: Sen. Peter Shumlins recent attack on the representative of IBM Vermonts largest private employer and one that contributes to the economic security of thousands of families was disgraceful. No matter what the circumstances, Shumlins behavior was inappropriate, unprofessional and disrespectful. IBM was doing nothing more than outlining its concerns about pending legislation an important perspective every legislator should value. Ive called IBM to let them know that the disrespect and contempt displayed by Senator Shumlin recently does not in anyway reflect the point of view of the State of Vermont. Private employers, large and small, drive Vermonts economy forward. The majority controlling this legislature must make economic growth their priority. Gov. Jim Douglas, Middlebury
