A victory, not a loss

LONDONDERRY — What a great day it was on Tuesday, Nov. 6! To have been a part of democracy in America was second to none, especially as a Vermonter!

Congratulations to Charles Goodwin on his victory as state representative for the Windham-Bennington-Windsor district.

The campaign and the race were the most challenging things I've done since bringing my farm back. It was a race that interested many people and thus activated a whole new dynamic in our district electorate.

This experience allowed me to work with and learn from both my immediate neighbors and the district at large. Having shared time with my community discussing important issues was a victory, not a loss!

I am honored to have had the support to run for state representative and humbled to have received nearly 45 percent of the vote in my first race! Winning Jamaica and almost winning Londonderry - short by only 19 votes - means a great deal.

I look forward to spending time with my wife and daughter and putting the farm “to bed” for the winter!

Thank you all who helped with the campaign's own success and all who voted for me.
