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.

Mullin, Valerie 2018.jpg

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.

BrittaClark3 (1).jpg

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.

ADDISON COUNTY — When Israel Dudley made his inaugural trip to Vermont, the first thing that jumped out at him was the silence.

Until Dudley was 11, the native of the Crown Heights neighborhood in Brooklyn, N.Y., had never ventured outside of New York City. That summer, the nonprofit Fresh Air Fund gave him the chance to spend two weeks with the family of Matthew and Deborah Dickerson in Bristol, Vt.

There are many beautiful paintings, drawings and photographs of downtown Middlebury with its iconic churches, a handsome stone arch bridge and quaint Main Street shops — it’s a nearly perfect advertisement for a New England village. Unfortunately, those images are marred by a big building project that most would call anything by beautiful.
