Guilford, Vermont

Mike Szostak

"As a mom, small business founder and owner, and a very active community member, Sara has demonstrated that she can effectively balance concern for meeting people's needs while being financially responsible. That's a very tough balancing act, one which requires skill, commitment, and hard work. As an independent voter, I try hard to assess the candidates I vote for, not based on their affiliations but rather, on their demonstrated abilities and accomplishments. Sara has everything I look for in a State Representative."

Libby Bennett

As a Vernon voter, I am truly impressed with Sara's openness to hearing from her soon-to-be constituents on the issues that most matter to us. Her focus on listening to the concerns of the people of Vernon and Guilford lay in stark contrast to that of her opponent, who has claimed he knows what Vernon and Guilford "need to do.”
