Due to the pandemic, voting for town offices looks to be particularly challenging this year. In Rockingham, we are blessed with a plethora of candidates for Selectboard. In my opinion, three particularly stand out: Bonnie North for the three-year position and Rick Cowan and Elijah Zimmer for the two one-year positions.
All three bring to the table a love for Rockingham’s heritage and a belief in its future, combining a desire to preserve the best elements of our past with the need to engage creatively with the challenges facing small towns in Vermont as we move forward in a post-COVID world.
I urge my fellow residents to vote on Tuesday, March 2 or to request an absentee ballot from the town clerk at 802-463-4336, ext. 1102 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
Maintaining strong community, strengthening local infrastructure, encouraging home ownership and affordability while keeping a sharp eye on the bottom line — let’s move Rockingham forward, with North, Cowan and Zimmer!
