of Malletts Bay Colchester, Chittenden County, Democrat, born March 5, 1953 New York. Moved to 463 Shore Acres Dr Colchester in 1990. Graduate of Burlington High School, University of Vermont B.S. Nursing 75, Employed by the Visiting Nurses Association, Colchester. Husband Jeff Spengler, parent of 3. I grew up in Islip, New York on the Great South Bay and spent most of my time sailing, observing the wide variety of aquatic life, and reading American authors such as Edna Ferber, Steinbeck and Pearl S. Buck. These stories of remarkably regular heroes who persevere in changing times, lending aid to others while playing out their drama upon the natural landscape were grounding and inspiring. Living on the bay over a ten year period I witnessed that as development increased along the perimeter of the bay the water became increasingly polluted and with this a loss of familiar aquatic species. Observing the death of species was haunting. The sadness of their loss contrasted with the growing consumerism of our culture increasingly divorced from nature. My family moved to Burlington in 1969 and to our home on the lake in Charlotte in 1972. We enjoyed the lake, full of fish and plant life but again as development increased the lake environment deteriorated. These experiences have shaped my view of our impact on our world. Now global warming has placed our very existence at stake. We must acknowledge the consequences of our choices, change course and prosper.
