Letter to the editor: Jerome makes things happen
A vote for Stephanie Zak Jerome in November is a vote for community, action, and results.
Stephanie cares about her community. While raising three children in Brandon, she jumped into public service volunteering for the schools, outdoor recreation, planning commission, Vermont Council for the Arts, and many others. Stephanie’s obligation to civic duty stems from a commitment to foster a sense of community with an empathetic ear. She cares deeply about Vermont and will listen to all Vermonters. She solves problems by discovering underlying causes to reach fact-based solutions. When elected, her ability to bring people together will benefit us all.
Stephanie is co-owner of a small Vermont business. She understands the difficulties that can arise and what it takes to mitigate obstacles to grow in Vermont. As a past employee of Stephanie’s, I appreciate her ability to see what needs to be done, sift through distractions, and find solutions. Stephanie sets high expectations of herself and her employees. Her focus is on no-nonsense action and results and she will bring these qualities to the state house when elected.
Stephanie sees what needs to be done and then makes things happen. As a three-year breast cancer survivor, Stephanie not only worked hard to rehabilitate herself, but she joined the Cancer Advisory Board to help others with shared experience. She sympathizes with the struggle of paying for health care and once elected into the House of Representatives, Stephanie will work hard to ensure that we have quality health care that is affordable.
Perhaps this can-do work ethic stems from Stephanie’s deep roots as a fifth-generation Vermonter or perhaps it was her time as a policy analyst at NASA. Whatever the reason, her resilience, knowledge, and strength will be an asset in Montpelier. Please vote for Stephanie Zak Jerome.
