Clark and Lu French (Manchester Village)

Our beautiful community has much to be grateful for, even as our country has suffered immeasurable losses.  Moving forward, we are now presented with unique challenges and opportunities that will set the stage for future generations. As we adapt to the post-pandemic challenges of economic instability, job & workforce housing shortages, school restructuring, the ongoing problem of climate change and the divisions so maliciously exploited by the current administration and US Senate leadership,  it is critical that we vote out those who have willfully endangered our people and our democracy. We also must elect local, state and federal government officials who are equal to the task of meeting these challenges with integrity, intelligence and compassion. Responsibly positioning our community for long-term sustainability while building on Vermont’s strengths and inclusivity are paramount. Locally, Kathleen James and Seth Bongartz have the experience, character and dedication to help steward us through these crucial times. Please join us in supporting Kathleen and Seth for Bennington-4 State Representatives. – Lu & Clark French (Manchester, Vermont)
