Jerome: Worked with and helped improve VY evacuation plan

We have two Statehouse representatives in the Dummerston-Putney-Westminster district. My first vote goes to Cindy Jerome.

I know Cindy from her years of work on the Dummerston Selectboard. Cindy was the first Selectboard member I knew to closely examine the evacuation plan for Entergy Nuclear Vermont Yankee, to work with other towns’ selectboards to change the plan so it had a better chance of being effective in an emergency, and to support the successful efforts of our state legislators to increase funding for our emergency responders.

Cindy studies the issues, and she quietly gets things done. I look forward to having her as one of our state representatives.
