Letter to the editor: Former gubernatorial candidate Ethan Sonneborn picks Hardy

There are several crucial qualities of a leader. Honesty, compassion, courage, and independence are traits we should all expect our elected officials and candidates to possess. There are so many candidates across our state who have shown these qualities over the course of this important election cycle.
One of these candidates is senate candidate Ruth Hardy. As a young person and activist, I recognize that Ruth Hardy is truly an advocate for all Vermonters. She shows the qualities of leadership every day. She has shown them as a school budget expert, as a parent, as a champion of electing Democratic women, and as a candidate for Senate. From working on school boards to training female candidates through Emerge Vermont, Ruth has always worked to make our Addison County communities stronger.
We need more politicians like Ruth Hardy to enact the change our state needs. Leadership matters now more than ever, and in that field, Ruth’s cup runneth over. A fierce advocate like Ruth is exactly the leader we need to replace retiring Senator Claire Ayer. Ruth has big shoes to fill, but if the voters of Addison County give her a chance, I’m confident she won’t let us down.
Ethan Sonneborn
