Thanks to Windham-2-2 voters

I am grateful to the voters of District 2 in Brattleboro for once again electing me to represent you in the Vermont Legislature.

It is truly a privilege to do so.

I want to thank you for getting to the polls in such high numbers. Many voted early, and others on Election Day. The citizen engagement was wonderful to witness.

I want to thank my campaign “buddies” who walked the streets and knocked on doors with me. It was such a pleasure to spend time with you.

As I canvassed this fall, I experienced the basic decency and kindness of people in our town. I enjoyed seeing the various walkways, beautiful gardens, and decorated doorways of your houses.

I heard about your neighborhoods, the problems that need attention, and the highlights that exist. I appreciated the conversations I had with old friends and new acquaintances. We truly have a wonderful community.

I hope to fulfill the trust you placed in me as your representative in Montpelier.

Please feel free to contact me about any issue you are concerned about, or let me know if I can help you in any way. The best way to contact me is by email, or you can also phone me at 802-257-4844.
