I write in support of Jessica Brumsted for Chittenden 5-2 State Representative. I met Jessica this summer and have had a chance to better understand her background, priorities and approach. Jessica’s extensive experience in government affairs and work with Senator Jeffords speaks to her ability to bring an independent-minded, collaborative and fresh approach to representing Shelburne’s interests in Montpelier. Jessica has raised children who have attended the CSSU schools and she understands Shelburne’s local concerns, opportunities and constraints. Jessica is committed to accelerating economic development as a legislative priority and will emphasize strengthening protections for our natural resources and environment. I encourage you to meet and spend some time with Jessica and to vote Brumsted on Nov. 8.
— Jaime Heins, Shelburne
