Bennington has two races for House seatsJune 16,2012
BENNINGTON — There will be two races in Bennington but none in the rest of the county for the state Legislature in the fall.
All of the incumbent legislators filed petitions to run, including Bennington County’s state Sens. Richard Sears and Robert Hartwell, both Democrats. Most of the legislators will be, like Sears and Hartwell, running unopposed.
The only challenge for state representative is in Bennington, where incumbents Timothy Corcoran II and Brian Campion, both Democrats who represent Bennington’s District 2-1, will face a challenge by Warren Roaf, a Republican who has not run for state office before. In District 2-2, incumbents Mary Morrissey, a Republican, and Anne Mook, a Democrat, will face first-time candidate Dale Gerity, a Democrat, who works as a counselor at the Bennington School, a private school for youths with special needs.
Roaf is currently finishing his time as principal at Mount Anthony Union Middle School where he was also a longtime teacher. Gerity is a lifelong resident of Bennington.
During the last legislative session, Manchester and Arlington became a combined district with two representatives. Incumbents Cynthia Browning, a Democrat who represented Arlington before the change, and Jeff Wilson, a Democrat who represented Manchester, are running unopposed.
Also running unopposed are William Botzow, a Democrat who represents Pownal; Alice Miller, a Democrat who represents Shaftsbury; and Patti Komline, a Republican who represents Dorset.MORE IN This Just InSEOUL, South Korea — North Korea fired three short-range guided missiles into its eastern waters ...
