ANSWER: Although I am running unopposed in this election, I want to take this opportunity to renew my commitment to my constituents and thank you for your support. In times like we have been experiencing over the past few years, I feel that it is important to have continuity and understanding of the issues, and I am grateful to be able to serve in that way. I am always available to constituents by phone and email, [email protected], and I strive to answer every message; if I don’t know the answer, I will find someone who does to connect you with. The most rewarding part of legislating is helping people, and it is gratifying to assist constituents with their requests. During the off-season, I attend School Board and Selectboard meetings, community forums, and other events to learn learn more about my constituents’ needs and to network with advocates so I can formulate my policy decisions in an informed way. I also serve on local boards and advisory councils, which keep the issues at the forefront for me. I take my commitment to voting according to my constituents’ best interests very seriously, and I appreciate the emails and phone calls I receive that help to guide my work. My goal is to be reasonable, reliable, and understanding of what Vermonters need, and I am honored to represent you in the Vermont Statehouse.
