What is your favorite location, place, building, or spot in Royalton? Why?

That would be my own house. We have a great view. We see Kent's Ledge from our house. You see the river. You can see the train, hear the train. It's just really quiet and peaceful but at the same time it's like a mile from town so it's great, it's perfect.

What do you think makes Royalton unique or different from other places you have lived or visited?

I think one of the things that makes Royalton unique is that it's a pretty authentic town in that it's not skewed to one angle or another politically or socioeconomically. While we don't have maybe a lot of other kinds of diversity we do have a lot of socioeconomic and educational diversity in town, which is really interesting. The blends are interesting.

What is the most challenging aspect of life in a small Vermont town like Royalton?

Probably what's challenging is people kind of know your business. That's good and bad. That's good, you feel like people have your back, or your kids back. But at the same time if something goes a little awry, that's a challenge. I think for some people transportation away from here is a challenge.

What Royalton resident made a positive difference in your life?

Bob and Marguerite Caron. They've made a huge difference in my life. They're my in-laws but they're also like my surrogate parents too.

What do you want people to know about your town?

We have the best White River, the best. You caught it once. I can't even describe it, you caught it in a photo. Just the way the fog is on the water in September in the morning. It's like the best. It is the absolutely most gorgeous place.

What is wish for your life? What is a wish for your town?

For my town I guess I'd like to see them embrace public education with a little more gusto as a whole community, and not just certain people in the community but I think they do a great job bringing our kids up.
