Candidate statement: Bonnie North, Rockingham Selectboard

Town meetings and elections are coming up in Vermont. This presents a mess of unusual challenges during these restricted times.

The pandemic has severely wounded our local economies and made everyday life more difficult for everyone. Yet, a crisis of this magnitude can also open doorways to changes that could revitalize our communities in ways perhaps not envisioned before.

Now it is probably more important than ever to pay attention, become engaged in local issues — and, most importantly, to vote in your town’s elections.

I am running for the three-year seat on the Rockingham Selectboard. If you are a Rockingham voter, I urge you to visit my campaign website at to learn more about me, what kinds of experience I have, and what some of my goals and intentions are.

I would appreciate your vote. No matter who you choose to vote for, I implore everyone to go the little bit of extra distance it may take this year and use your vote, speak your voice, and be an active participant in decisions that will impact the future of your town.
