This morning I am mindful of the responsibility and expectation the voters in Dover, Readsboro, Searsburg, Somerset, Stamford, Wardsboro and Whitingham communicated with their vote in yesterday’s election. There are significant challenges, and opportunities, ahead.
I ran on the promise to represent our local voice in Montpelier. I don’t have an agenda other than to work hard so that our state government works better for the people it serves.
Every year before Town Meeting, a fellow Dover school official assures me that the voters will always tell us what they want. This was a very long race, and I deeply appreciate the tremendous support the campaign received from day one. Whether you voted for me, and perhaps even more importantly, if you did not, I hope you will stay in touch and help me understand how our state government can better serve our local interests.
My sincere thanks to John Moran for his eight years of service to our district as well as my appreciation for the respect he showed for both our Democratic election process, and for our voters, by campaigning and working hard in all seven of the towns in our district.
