She Deserves the Support of the Community

To the editor:

I am voting for Katherine Sims for State Representative and I urge you to do the same. Katherine deserves the support of the community in her effort to serve the people of Albany, Barton, Craftsbury, Glover, Greensboro, Sheffield and Wheelock after her many years of service to the community.

Katherine is tenacious and an undeniably hard worker. During the 2019 Legislative Session, I worked as a committee assistant for the House Committee on Energy and Technology. During this time, I had the privilege to work with Katherine as she organized Northeast Kingdom Day at the State House. Her level of organization was unmatched. Katherine was able to rally community members from across the NEK to come into House Energy and Technology to talk about their experiences with broadband in rural areas. Her planning was strategic and allowed for each committee member to be directly addressed through the narrative those testifying brought before the group.

Katherine has a proven record of listening to the constituents of the NEK and then acting accordingly to bring resources and solutions that will directly support individuals. She knows how to hear a person’s concerns and then transform that into action. That is the kind of person I want representing me in Montpelier.

I urge folks to vote for Katherine because I know that she will always fight for her community. Once she’s in the State House, representing our beautiful region, I have faith in the knowledge that Katherine will uphold the values of our community and work to make Vermont a better place.
