Representative Toll: I just wanted to let you know how much those of us on Walbridge Road in Cabot appreciate all your help in addressing a Fairpoint service issue that has been bedeviling us for quite some time. Your responsiveness and persistence has resulted in the first meaningful action by Fairpoint and pointed us in the right direction for whom at the State we can work with to resolve this. We couldn’t ask for more in terms of constituent service; please keep on the good work on behalf of regular Vermonters!

I have known Kitty since she was a little girl. I have watched her grow and develop into a very bright, caring person who has a great ability to listen! When she listens, she really hears you and her hearing is not shielded by her previous opinions. She has researched and found answers when I have asked questions. Kitty will get my vote because she has proven herself in our church, our community, our state and as an excellent State Representative. Kitty is very inclusive. She sees beyond party lines.

Our family met Kitty and her huge Beattie family when we moved to Danville 27 years ago. The Beattie’s were all very welcoming to us and took us into their fold. Since then My husband Bruce and I have worked with Kitty on the Pope Memorial Library board of trustees and Kitty and I have served on several committees (and still do) for the Danville Congregational Church.
When Kitty was president of the Pope Memorial Library board we were involved in a capital campaign to replace the library’s roof. We were several thousand dollars away from our goal when Kitty contacted Mary Elizabeth Robinson who had special ties to Danville and lived in Pennsylvania. Mary Elizabeth responded with a check for the remaining amount of money needed to replace the roof and continued to donate to our library, thanks to Kitty.
Kitty is unquestionably committed to Danville and to Vermont and she works tirelessly for both. There is no one better to represent us.

It’s my personal opinion that Kitty Toll has always been an outstanding representative for Cabot residents. Kitty is a very hard working individual, spending time in Cabot listening to people, and, through multiple communication outlets working to keep Cabot residents informed on legislative activities and initiatives. I believe we are indeed fortunate to have someone like Kitty representing us in Montpelier.

We support reelection of Catherine “Kitty” Toll as State Representative serving Cabot, Danville and Peacham. Kitty has served our district since 2009 and in the last three sessions served on the key House Appropriations Committee. A moderate, Kitty was raised on a still-active, fifth-generation farm in Danville by her parents, the late Harold and Catherine Beattie, herself a former Representative, taught elementary school locally and served numerous community organizations, including as Co-chair of the Danville Chamber of Commerce, [trustee of the Danville Congregational Church,] long-time Danville Fair organizer, and NVRH Corporator. As Representative, Kitty co-sponsored and supported legislation important to our community including bills that would increase the smoking age to 21, establish farm-to-school programs, and better regulate opioid prescription drugs. In November, we will vote to re-elect Kitty as our district’s Representative.

As my representative, Kitty has twice assisted me in navigating issues with Vermont Health Connect. Not only did she help expedite the process, she did so with compassion, integrity and efficiency. My children and I appreciate Kitty’s steadfast commitment and effort that she puts forth while serving as a true representative for her constituents.

Kitty has been an excellent legislator in every way. She is dedicated to her job, always keeping her constituents in mind. She is probing and thoughtful. The thing we find most amazing is how accessible she is. Kitty is always willing to listen to input, including opposing points of view. She is smart and articulate and able to explain her votes. She is also a very active member in both Danville and the wider community serving on boards, organizing fundraising and social activities as well as successfully raising funds for two major capital campaigns. In addition to all of that she has raised two beautiful daughters and made sure that her husband, Abel, sells lots of cars and trucks.

Kitty Toll brings hard work, creativity and good humor to any project. She was a tireless volunteer on behalf of Northeastern Vermont Regional Hospital during its first major fundraising drive since the building of the hospital. She carried through on all her commitments, with great results for NVRH. She brought in many new donors, and encouraged regular donors to be much more generous. We were fortunate to have her on our side!

Kitty carries her positive energy, vision, and her amazing leadership to the State House.

I really appreciate the hard work of Kitty Toll as my representative, especially during these past two years dealing with the school consolidation issue. Kitty kept in touch with me as the Act 46 legislation moved between committees and onto the floor. Her phone calls and emails were timely and included information and discussion on how the proposal would affect our school. I’ve always found her to be very responsive to my constituent requests, whether on education, agriculture or land use. I’m very proud to have her serve as my representative in the Legislature.
