The citizens of Barre just demonstrated their tremendous commitment to public engagement. The turnout on Nov. 6 was impressive. Keep that spirit.
I am so honored to be your representative-elect. Thank you. I affirm my pledge to be fair, truthful and candid while discharging my responsibilities in Montpelier. As my duties commence, I promise to keep all Barre's citizens well-informed. And to be a good listener.
I could not conclude without acknowledging my respect for, and gratitude to, Rep. Paul Poirier for his years of public service, truly an example to us all. Hopefully, the next generation will keep up the momentum demonstrated Tuesday, and fill the many positions which local government requires to function effectively.
