Editor of the Reformer,

I am writing to encourage our neighbors who live in Brattleboro District 1 to vote for Emily Kornheiser for representative in the August 14th primary election.

What really impressed me about Emily Kornheiser is when I watched her at the West Brattleboro Bar-b-que this spring talking to people who dropped by. For more than three hours she actively listened. And I mean actively listened. She intently focused on the person speaking and then spoke only to clarify and fully understand the person's concerns. She was not in a hurry to move on. It was a diverse community with diverse concerns and I saw she was concerned with all of it.

Others have already elaborated on her demonstrated activities for economic development, health care inequality, social justice, and our environmental responsibilities.      Voting began June 29 at the Town Clerks's office.
