We did it! You did it. We did this together: the campaign team, more than 50 volunteers, more than 150 donors, and the entire West Brattleboro community. According to unofficial results, I am the Democratic nominee for Vermont House of Representatives in Windham 2-1.
It may be wet out, but it's a beautiful day for democracy!
Polls are open at the Municipal Center (230 Main Street) until 7pm.
If you know someone who needs transportation to vote, have them call or text Chad Simmons at 802-451-8627 to arrange a ride. (Rides will be available until 6pm.)
Our healthcare system is broken. I think we can all agree on that. People are suffering, dying, and going bankrupt because they can’t afford the care they need. This has to stop.
Election day is nearly here, and I hope you and your friends have been getting to the polls! To mark the last weeks of primary season, we're screening a new important documentary about voter suppression: Capturing the Flag, a film by Anne DeMare. Join us Wednesday, August 1 at 7pm in the Hooker Dunham Theatre at 132 Main St. Refreshments will be served!
Emilie, her family, and campaign volunteers marched in the Brattleboro Goes Fourth parade, today. Some of our signs included "Work for Democracy" and "Everyone Help - Help Everyone."
Housing in Vermont has been at crisis levels for many years now. Brattleboro has one of the lowest vacancy rates in the country, and our wages don't come close to the more than $20 per hour needed for market rate housing.
Celebrate the First Day of Voting this primary season!
Vote at the Town Clerk's office, then stroll on up Main Street and join us on the Common for food, music, and fun.
Emilie will be MC'ing the Community Vision Stage at Tiny House Fest this weekend!
Join Emilie and the campaign team for a glorious weekend in Brattleboro!
Here's where to find us:
Chicken, baked beans, coleslaw, and community! The barbecue takes place yearly on Western Avenue in the West Brattleboro village center. 11 am - 2 pm, but come early because they always sell out.
Join Emilie and the campaign team at Camp for a Common Cause 2018!
