ROCKINGHAM — On Aug. 11, primary voters had the difficult task of choosing two Democratic candidates to represent Windham-3 in the Vermont House of Representatives in the general election on Nov. 3. I am very grateful to have been chosen as one of those two.
I would be both humbled and honored to serve Windham-3 as our state representative, and I want to take my focus on problem-solving to the State House to take on the difficult challenges in health care, our economy, education, social justice, and climate change, among others.
I am thankful for the support of voters in the primary and I humbly ask for support again in the general election in November.
Ballots will be mailed directly to every voter in Vermont by the secretary of state in September. As you have no doubt heard, the president is trying to disrupt the United States Postal Service to slow down the return of those ballots.
So please consider three options:
1. If you choose to mail your ballot back in, do so by Oct. 20, just to give our postal workers adequate business days to process them, or
2. Hand-deliver your completed ballot to your town clerk prior to the election, or
3. On Election Day, Tuesday, Nov. 3, vote in person or bring your completed ballot to your polling place.
This critical election has been called the battle for the soul of our democracy. Please take these words seriously and vote.
Please contact me through my website, LeslieGoldmanVT.com, with thoughts and questions. I will be in touch with you.
