Mid-session update: justice, education, and more

‘Serving in Montpelier has been an incredibly rewarding experience (aside from getting Covid), and I am enjoying each opportunity I get to support local communities’

Although I had prepared speeches and paper handouts for folks around our county on Town Meeting Day, I unfortunately tested positive for Covid the day before and had to cancel my plans to visit different towns.

It is especially disappointing because I was excited about the prospect of revisiting our old Town Meeting traditions and talking with folks to present my updates, hear their various issues, and listen in on the hearty town debates about different articles.

But there's always a silver lining! Since I can't go out in person, I realized I can make the most of this isolation time to write a letter containing some legislative updates for folks to read.

Incumbent rep. endorses Mrowicki, Bos-Lun for Windham-4 seat

I am writing to formally endorse both Rep. Mike Mrowicki and candidate Michelle Bos-Lun as the state representatives for the Windham-4 district. Together, they would make an effective and well-balanced team. During my two-year tenure working alongside Rep. Mrowicki, he has illustrated substantial institutional knowledge across the very broad spectrum that is the state of Vermont government. Whenever I had a question during my learning process, he either had an answer or he knew where to find the answer. He...

At the start of the...

Coffey: honesty, authenticity, and accountability

I am writing this letter in support of Sara Coffey and her campaign for state representative for Windham-1. These days, I feel as if citizens are holding the values of honesty, authenticity, and accountability at the forefront of their minds when choosing candidates. After watching Coffey's campaign earlier in the season, and after having the opportunity to speak with her, I am confident that she embodies the values we need in politicians. She has a strong determination to bring communities...
