Kornheiser: dialogue, transparency, and a balanced approach

I am reaching out to my friends and neighbors in West Brattleboro to encourage you to vote for Emilie Kornheiser for state representative (Brattleboro District 1).

Over the years, I have had the honor to work with Emilie as a fellow state employee and as a community partner at Youth Services.

Emilie has proven to impress me time and time again with her balanced approach and vision. She provides dialogue and transparency with her constituents and stands firm on issues related to social justice, equity, and issues impacting working Vermonters.

Emilie also supports fair and progressive taxes to help provide supports that are so needed by many Vermonters.

I believe Emilie will continue to represent our needs and give us voice in Montpelier and that she supports building a community that works for all of us, not just a select few. My union, the Vermont State Employees’ Association, also endorses Emilie!

So please stand with us and vote for Emilie on or before Election Day, Nov. 3.
