District, town, state well-served by Kornheiser

BRATTLEBORO-I urge voters in Brattleboro District 7 to nominate Emilie Kornheiser for their Representative to the Vermont Legislature in the Democratic Primary on August 13.

Although I am not in the district, I have come to know Emilie through my interfaith organizing work around affordable housing and homelessness.

My admiration of her has increased as I have watched her work in many settings. She is smart, articulate, knowledgeable, conscientious, and creative. She is able to explain complex issues in everyday language. She is a hard worker and dedicated to her values.

She wants the best for her constituents in particular and Vermonters in general. In her six years in the Legislature, she has developed important relationships and is admired and respected by her colleagues.

Brattleboro's District 7, Brattleboro in general, and the state of Vermont will be well-served with Emilie Kornheiser being returned to the State House.
