Join us to re-elect Sara as Vermont State Rep. for Vernon & Guilford!
"Sara has represented the towns of Guilford and Vernon since 2018, and in her work at the State House she always has the best interests of our residents here in Southern Vermont in mind. ... [She] has supported important legislative efforts to address the inequity that exists in our early childhood educational system. ...We need Sara to continue her work supporting Vermont families and teachers. I urge Guilford and Vernon voters to vote for Sara Coffey in November to re-elect her as our State Representative."

"In my line of work I understand how important it is for people to talk with each other and sit together in community. Sara has done exactly that these past two terms and I hope you will join me in sending her for a third term. As storms intensify and temperatures of 70 degrees in late October are becoming more frequent, I am grateful for Sara’s championing of climate and backing policies that address climate change."
