Rep. Sibilia: March 22 Update

Good evening

Governor Scott is calling on all Vermonters to help our state during this time. Can you deliver a meal, deliver a lesson on video, sing to your fellow Vermonters virtually? We are all in this together – thank you for all you are each doing to support your families, neighbors and communities.

I hope today was restful and enjoyable before our brief relapse back into winter tomorrow. For me today was spent understand how the Vermont Legislature will be attempting to work to move forward with critical legislation needed to sustain Vermonters in the coming months.

It is likely that this week we will pass a resolution allowing the Vermont Legislature to vote electronically. Just as soon as more is know about the specifics, I will share that information.

Vermont’s five independent legislators met virtually today to discuss how to best move forward in this regard. Xxx

Windham County Delegation

Windham County Delegation virtusl meeting at 11 am this Sunday morning

Your Windham County legislators want you to know that we are taking the COVID 19 situation very seriously, and are continuing our work, while at home. We are in regular communication with legislative leaders, the Administration, each other and you, our constituents. 

During this time it is  so important to watch out for each other, so, please do not hesitate to reach out to any of us if we can be of any help during this State of Emergency.

While we are not in Montpelier, we have continued our work together to advance a package of bills to put us on a strong footing as we meet the public health  and economic challenge of this crisis. State and local government are working to protect the vulnerable, limiting the spread of infection, and maintaining public health and safety.

The Legislature is also working closely with the Governor’s office and our Federal Delegation in DC,  to ensure we are all working in harmony to help Vermonters weather this crisis. 

The community spread of  COVID 19, that we’re now seeing, puts us at a tipping point to reduce or amplify infection.The health of our state and the success of our health care system in treating this pandemic is now up to us. Please model good behavior by staying home except for absolutely necessary outings, and practice thorough and frequent hand washing.  Collectively, we have the power to slow the spread and flatten the curve.

Together we will get through this. During this time we, as your legislators, are accessible. There are many ways to find and  access services or get questions answered in this publication and elsewhere. However, if you have a need for service or a question you can’t find help for, please do not hesitate to reach out to any of us.

Stay healthy and be well!

Sen.Jeanette White, Sen. Becca Balint, Sarah Coffey, Emilie Kornheiser, Mollie Burke,Tristan Toleno, Carolyn Patridge, Nader Hashim, Mike Mrowicki, Emily Long, John Gannon, Kelly Pajala, Laura Sibilia.
