Windham 4 Legislators Hold Online Community Meeting: VT State Representatives Mike Mrowicki and Nader Hashim welcome constituents from the Windham 4 District of Putney, Dummerston and Westminster. The Legislature is still in session, working overtime, due to the health, safety and economic concerns arising from the COVID Crisis, but still want to keep constituents apprised of actions undertaken and proposed. Along with those concerns, current events have filled the headlines with reminders of the serious issues of Racial Justice. We can look at how the Legislature can address this as well as how we can each in our individual way, take action to promote Social and Racial Justice. Joining these Reps will be our state Senator Jeanette White, with the Senate perspective on what's happening on statewide and local concerns. We also look forward to hearing your questions, comments, suggestions on other concerns. 10 - 11 a.m. Zoom. Information: Email for sign-in info:
