    First, on this Veterans Day as I write, I want to thank my husband for his service with a medical unit in Vietnam. To all veterans, I share in broad appreciation for the sacrifice of your service.

    I also want to thank voters for the successful outcome of my campaign on election day. I look forward to representing Rutland-Windsor 1 in Montpelier in the upcoming session, and to bringing back an informed statewide context for your concerns. The campaign was very much of a team effort, and it could not have happened without such capable heads and hands working with me. I was able to focus on door-to-door visits, all kinds of events and meetings, and diverse communications. Many others assisted with contributions, signs, driving, mailings, sign-holding, letters, and general encouragement along the way. My thanks to all, including downtown headquarters and beyond, who assisted in any way. I send special thanks to family and friends whose support moved me forward. I am honored to serve.

    I look forward to connecting with other representatives and doing the work. My priorities remain — to keep our schools strong and to attract diverse small business and industry to our area.

    Thanks to Rep. Eckhardt and all who have served before me. Years ago, I registered as an Independent, and I still ascribe to independent thinking and collaborative problem-solving as a future legislator. There is much good work to be done.
