This past week marked the official start to summer as our kids enjoyed their first full week off from school and we all were treated to a gorgeous summer solstice. My family celebrated the longest day of the year with a campfire, s’mores, and sparklers with friends. I hope your summer is off to a great start too!
Although it’s summer, our campaign is not on vacation! We’re busy getting out to meet people and spread the message about how important this election is for our county, state, and country. My campaign is working hard and we could use your help. Here’s our Summer Campaign Plan and how you can help!
Door Knocking. I want to talk with as many voters as possible and people are much more likely to vote if we meet them at their home. This past week, I visited more than 200 people in Bristol and Vergennes with the help of Abigail, Bas, Greta, and Katie. Sign up to help me knock on doors in your town!
Community Events. Getting out to community events is important. Let me know if there is an event in your town I should attend. You can take a look at my campaign calendar to see where I’ll be. I’ll definitely be at the Bristol 4th of July Parade, for which the Addison County Democrats are planning a special float for this year’s parade theme – Musicals! If you’d like to sing, march, play an instrument, or help out in any way, please let me know – we could use some more creative talent!
House Parties. Do you have a group of friends and neighbors I should meet? Host a gathering at your house so I can be sure to meet as many people as possible. Saturdaybrunch, Sunday tea, Wednesday coffee, Friday happy hour – whatever works for you can work for me! It’s a fun way to campaign, especially because I have 26 towns to cover! Sign up here to host a house party.
Yard Signs. I’m not a huge fan of yard signs, but I do want to have enough well-placed signs around the 800 square miles in the district so people know my name. If you live in a visible, high traffic area and would be willing to host a sign, let me know. If not, consider chipping in a contribution of $5 per sign so we can afford this big campaign expense.
Getting out the Vote. Early voting for the August 14th primary election starts June 29th! Make a plan to vote before your summer schedule gets too full. Vote for me for VT Senate, as well as candidates in the many important races around the county and state. You can get information on where, how, and when to vote on the VT Secretary of State’s website. Sign up to volunteer if you’d like to help with GOTV calls or social media posts.
If you’d like to be in touch about helping with the campaign, reply to this email, and I’ll get back to you. Thank you for all of your support! I could not be running for Vermont State Senate without you. I’m honored to have you on my team.
My very best,
P.S. Congratulations to all of the high school graduates in Addison County, including my own daughter, Greta! Our family, like so many others, is proud to have a graduate who has worked hard and accomplished so much. May we all work together to ensure our daughters and sons have a bright future. Onward!
