    Washington County lawmakers are solid

    I am a lifelong Republican and I have been an early childhood educator in East Montpelier for the last 44 years. As a dedicated child care provider I have provided care to many community members. My colleagues and I are committed to forming a union amongst our profession as a tool to raising the quality and affordability for the care that we provide, along with bringing much-needed respect to our profession.

    Therefore on Nov. 6, I will be voting for Sen. Ann Cummings, Rep. Tony Klein and Sen. Anthony Pollina to continue representing Washington County in the Legislature, because they are dedicated to fighting for Vermontís families and working people.

    Sen. Cummings has met with us many times to give guidance on passing legislation that truly values women like me and the work that we do. Two weeks ago Sen. Cummings said she is running for pro tem of the Senate because she wants to represent providers like me.

    Rep. Tony Klein and Sen. Anthony Pollina are both very supportive of our issues. They have listened and heard what we are saying. They have been true champions on our behalf in Montpelier. We need to vote for elected leaders who understand the struggles of working families, the needs of growing children, and who will take action on issues that provides support to hardworking Vermonters. Sen. Ann Cummings, Rep. Tony Klein and Sen. Anthony Pollina are those elected leaders. I hope youíll join me in voting to send them back to Montpelier.
