Candidate meet-and-greet set for Leicester
LEICESTER — Peter Conlon, candidate for the Vermont House of Representatives from Addison-2 district, is hosting a gathering for conversation with coffee and doughnuts at the Leicester Town Hall on Saturday, Oct. 22, from 8:30 to 10:30 a.m.
Addison-2 encompasses the towns of Leicester, Cornwall, Ripton, Salisbury, Goshen and Hancock. Incumbent state Rep. Willem Jewett, D-Ripton, chose not to run for re-election after representing the district for 14 years.
Although Conlon, a Cornwall resident, is running unopposed, he’s getting out in the district and meeting the folks he seeks to represent in the statehouse. He’ll be joined at the Oct. 22 meet-and-greet by incumbent state Sens. Claire Ayer and Chris Bray. All three candidates are Democrats.
They are inviting Leicester residents, and all people in the district, to join them, and to invite their friends and neighbors. Everyone is welcome, regardless of party affiliation.
