Well friends, Election Day has come and gone. First and foremost, we’d like to say how PROUD we are of every Democratic candidate up and down the ballot who ran a campaign this year. Each and every one of them were unwearying in their commitment to their race, working extremely hard for many weeks. And of course, we’d like to offer a huge CONGRATULATIONS to our Democratic candidates who won their races.
Next, we need to give a huge THANK YOU to all of our volunteers who worked tirelessly during this campaign cycle raising awareness about Democrats all over Vermont, and doing every single thing possible to Get Out The Vote! Hard workers like you are the heart and soul of what keeps our democracy thriving.
We saw unbelievably low turnout in Vermont for Election Day, and we understand that these numbers are typical for midterm election years. And we also understand that when Democrats vote, Democrats win. We want you to know how appreciative we are that you voted.
But our work isn’t done, in fact it’s just beginning. We are ready to roll up our sleeves and work side by side with our newly elected or re-elected candidates to make sure we keep Vermont moving forward. There are a lot of extremely important issues that will be taken up in the legislature in the next biennium, and we will do everything in our power to make sure the quality of life in this wonderful state only gets better for hard-working Vermonters.
