“Senator Chris Bray’s dedication to public service and his deep experience in the Vermont Legislature are the perfect match for Ruth Hardy’s community service, energy and enthusiasm as they run for the Vermont Senate.

Chris has amassed an impressive record of accomplishments in the Vermont Legislature, starting with his Farm to Plate Bill in 2009, which has helped add 6,400 new jobs statewide, to the Clean Water Act, which takes an “Everybody In” approach to improving water quality. He listens to all Vermonters and represents us fairly and with great attention to detail.

Ruth brings vital knowledge of our public education system and of how to craft collaborative budgets. She has given 16 years of public service to our local community, serving on the boards of early childhood programs and school boards.

Together, Chris and Ruth offer a unique blend of experience and enthusiasm and will work hard to create excellent jobs, a good life for families and children, and a clean and healthy environment.

I’m casting my two votes for Sen. Chris Bray and for Ruth Hardy for the Vermont Senate on Nov. 6.”
