I hope fellow Fairfax residents will take the time to cast their votes in the primary on Tuesday, August 14th. It is predicted that voter turnout will be low, but it is always important to be involved.

I believe that it is time for Fairfax residents and voters to be represented in Montpelier by someone who will listen to their genuine concerns, and who pledges to be transparent and accountable on important roll call votes. With over 20 years of experience with public policy and having advocated for legislation that would strengthen families, I am familiar with the legislative process and understand the issues.
Franklin County Republicans are organizing to lead a statewide effort to launch an affordability campaign in order to get our State back on the right fiscal track - to not only keep government budgets in line, but to ultimately win tax cuts for hard working, over-burdened Vermonters.  I want to be part of the team that gets that done.
I am honored that an energized Fairfax Republican Town Committee has faith in my abilities and that they have encouraged me to seek to win the office. If you select a Republican ballot on Tuesday, please consider casting your vote for Mary Beerworth.

Dear Fairfax Community,

As you may have recently learned, our Community Library Director Debbie Landauer has resigned as of August 27th to accept a new position. Under her leadership, our library has become a hub of community activity and resources, with excellent programs and materials for myriad ages and interests. 

The Trustees learned of Debbie's decision several days prior to her public announcement.  We have, therefore, been working to find a qualified interim director to fill the position while we conduct a more extensive search for a permanent director.  We are feeling optimistic.  It is likely that there will be no gap in service;  we want to make sure the library will remain open as before.  Because we will fill the interim library director position prior to filling a currently open position of program director, however, you will notice a temporary decline in program offerings. 

Please do not hesitate to contact us.

Pat Gallant, Chair,  Trustees
Fairfax Community Library

Dear Library Friends,
I am writing to share with you the news that I will be leaving the Fairfax Community Library, and that my last day here will be Monday, August 27th.

It has been such a pleasure to serve and get to know everyone in this wonderful community for the past eight years. Thank you for making working here so delightful! 

Change can be hard, but it is also an opportunity.  I know the Library Trustees are working diligently to conduct a thorough search for a new Director and Program Planner.  There will likely be an interim Director for several months. Because of all these changes, September and October will likely be rather quiet as far as programs. Rest assured that Nicole and I will be helping the new people learn the ropes when they are on board.

I will be joining the Waterbury Public Library as their new Director. I will miss the wonderful patrons here, but also look forward to the new challenges and opportunities that a new job provides.

All the best,
Debbie Landauer
