Last week I attended the campaign kick-off gathering for Ruth Hardy and was so pleased with her message. It was a wonderful exciting atmosphere at American Flatbread filled with people of all ages. I’ve known Ruth for a few years and was glad to hear that she was running for the seat that Senator Ayer will be stepping back from.
I live in Hancock, one of the two easternmost towns of Addison County. We are often an afterthought when someone speaks of Addison County. But we’ve been fortunate in having wonderful representatives and sometimes senators who are willing to make the trip “over the mountain” to hear our concerns. I know that Ruth will follow suit and am looking forward to seeing what she can accomplish in Montpelier for all of her constituents. I know she’ll represent us well.
