While all eyes are focused on the national presidential election, it is essential that we pay close attention to our local elections and vote for the candidates who will provide positive leadership for our community and state. Sherri Durgin-Campbell, running for a seat in our state Legislature, is one such candidate. As a trained mediator, Sherri is uniquely qualified to work on the issues that affect us all: accessible and affordable health care, sustainable economic development, and quality of life for all Vermonters. Sherri has been endorsed by Planned Parenthood and is running a grass-roots campaign, going door to door listening to the needs and priorities of those of us who live in Rutland City. We are supporting Sherri and look forward to seeing her serve.
