Letter to the editor: Thanks to Sen. Bray for near-perfect attendance
At the recent legislative breakfast in Salisbury Senator Chris Bray turned out to be the only legislator able to attend. As a result he was on his feet throughout the whole meeting, answering questions on a wide variety of issues: Toxic chemicals in the environment, plastic recycling, broadband and cell coverage, the opioid crisis, clean water, automotive emissions testing, and more. He had authoritative answers for most questions, prompting moderator Bill Scott to comment that he seemed to be a walking encyclopedia. When Chris did not have an answer he promised to get back to the questioner with more information.
I appreciate Chris Bray’s dedication to his job as a state senator. His near-perfect attendance at legislative breakfasts over the past eleven years is an indication of his commitment to being accessible to his constituents. His ability to answer questions on such a wide range of topics shows that he takes an interest in issues beyond those his committee happens to be taking up. We are fortunate to have him representing us in Montpelier.
