Now the Bristol Democrat is hoping his good fortune and tenacity will earn him a spot in the Vermont House in his first-ever campaign. He is seeking one of the two seats representing the Addison-4 district, which includes the towns of Bristol, Monkton, Starksboro and Lincoln.

MONKTON — Monkton Republican Valerie Mullin is hoping the third time will be the charm when it comes to her latest effort to win one of two seats representing the Addison-4 district in the Vermont House.

Mullin, 59, amassed respectable vote totals in both the 2014 and 2016 elections, but not enough to out-poll incumbent Reps. Fred Baser, R-Bristol and Dave Sharpe, D-Bristol.

GOSHEN – For most people, it’s hard to imagine running a full marathon. But for Goshen resident Britta Clark, running an ultra-distance trail race of 50K or more is as natural as stepping out her back door.

Clark is the daughter of Tony Clark and Shari Brown, co-owners of Goshen-based Blueberry Hill Inn and Ski Center. The 24-year-old returned to Goshen this spring after a year-long Fulbright fellowship in New Zealand, where she studied inter-generational justice.
