Letter to the editor: Audet and Ralston will stand up for rural communities

With Marie’s agricultural background she will bring a boots on the ground perspective to the ever-changing farming landscape.

By Jason M. Duquette-Hoffman



It may be a crowded field, but the choice for who to send to the Vermont Senate this November is simple. All you need to do is ask one basic question:

Who do you think will work the hardest for all of us?

Not just for farmers alone, or townsfolk alone, or businesses alone, or teachers alone, or retirees alone, or workers alone. For all of us, together.
