Throughout my campaign, I have tried to demonstrate to voters who I am as a person and a public servant and why they should elect me as their senator. I have worked hard, learned a lot, listened actively, included everyone, and tried to be the best candidate in the field. I am Ruth Hardy and I want to represent you, the people, of our district. I ask for your vote.
Election Day is a week away. Do you have a voting plan? If not, make one. It turns out that the best way to make sure we do something, is to plan to do something. Pull out your calendars, find November 6, and schedule a time to get to the polls!

Every year, my hometown of Middlebury celebrates Labor Day in festive fashion, with a rally on the town green where musicians play, politicians and community leaders speak, and children frolic—always capped off with a speech from Senator Bernie Sanders. I was honored to stand on the podium this year, speaking to the crowd of hundreds about why I am running to represent them.
