    Change through the people

    If there ever was a vote that had nothing to do with politics, the Unified Towns and Gores of Essex County is it. It had nothing to do with Democrats, Republicans or Progressives. It was a vote that will stand in the history of Vermont. It’ll be felt from the Northeast Kingdom to southern Vermont. People came together to stand up to industrial wind and corporate money. Their mountains, their heritage and way of life is more important than any political lines or wads of money laid before them. After understanding what has happened to the mountains of Vermont and the rest of the Northeast, they proclaimed this land as their own backyard. They didn’t cave in.
