Hebert served in proud, bipartisan tradition

RE: “” [, Nov. 30]:

I think the people of Vernon and Guilford have been extremely fortunate to have had Mike Hebert represent us since 2010. I wish we could clone his fair, responsible, bipartisan, and very personal approach to governance and spread it from Montpelier to Washington, D.C.

As chair of the Guilford Democratic Committee, I have been very pleased to see support for Mike grow across the board, from Republicans to Progressives. It is a proud Vermont tradition — the legacy of Governor George Aiken and many others of all parties.

It is our hope, our expectation that Sara Coffey, a Democratic candidate for the Windham-1 seat, will keep Mike’s legacy alive, serving all of us in Vernon and Guilford and across the brave little state of Vermont.

On a personal level, I wish the Heberts returning health and well deserved happiness for years to come.
