Peg Flory to cap 20-year career as Rutland-area lawmaker

RUTLAND — After two decades of serving the people of Rutland County in the Statehouse, Sen. Peg Flory on Tuesday announce she will not from for re-election the Vermont Senate in November.
“It has been my distinct honor and privilege to serve the people of Rutland County in the Senate for the past nine years, and in the House for 11 years before that,” Flory said in a press release. “Fighting for responsible state spending, policies to encourage economic growth, critical investments in our transportation infrastructure, and civil and criminal justice reform have all been at the center of my efforts. And, I have worked diligently throughout the years, with people from across the political spectrum, to achieve some success in each critical policy area.”
“While there remains much to do to ensure that the primary focus of Montpelier is on the fundamentals of government and prosperity for all Vermonters, it is time for me to step aside, and for a new voice to take on the challenge.”
“As this time in my life comes to a close, and I embark on new adventures, I want to sincerely thank the people of Rutland County for placing their trust and confidence in me throughout these last 20 years. You will never know how much that support has meant to me, but suffice it to say, it has been a true honor and privilege to serve you.”
