Editor of the Reformer,

I am writing to encourage my Brattleboro District 1 neighbors to vote for Emilie Kornheiser for Representative in the August 14th primary election. Over the past two years, I've had the opportunity to work with Emilie on several community organizing projects. I was immediately impressed with her broad and nuanced understanding of the issues facing our community, her compassionate approach, and her creative and courageous solutions to our challenges—from economic development to healthcare to inequality. I admire and appreciate Emilie's ability to bring people together in difficult conversations, her skillful facilitation, and her honest desire to truly hear every side of every story. During these times of divisive politics, Emilie is the new kind of leader we need: empathetic, creative, smart, outspoken, knowledgeable, and courageous. The primary election began on June 29; I hope my neighbors will all support Emilie in this campaign. Sincerely, Robin MacArthur Marlboro
