Urges votes for Mrowicki, Balint, White, and Kornheiser

In these more-than-difficult times, it takes real courage and tenacity to be a voice for marginalized people.

Representative Mike Mrowicki of Putney and Senators Becca Balint and Jeannette White have consistently and effectively advocated for people with disabilities and for poor and low-income community members; they have fought for legislation that addresses systemic racism in Vermont.

We are extremely fortunate to have their representation in Montpelier, and I hope you will join me in voting for their continued presence in the Statehouse.

Similarly, I have worked with Emilie Kornheiser for the past two years on several workgroups for social change and justice. Emilie has the ability to bridge people from different viewpoints, to build consensus without losing her passion, and to listen deeply. She will make a great addition to the southern Vermont delegation, and I wholeheartedly endorse her bid for state representative.
