Letter: Coffey is an outstanding community leader
As an artist, educator, and community builder I've watched and been wildly impressed by Sara Coffey. Under Sara's leadership Vermont Performance Lab (VPL) has provided and fostered original performance work that holds meaningful social questions of our time. Sara Coffey is an outstanding community leader who builds coalitions making everyone eager to participate and always feel rewarded by their participation. Sara's work has advanced the creative economy in Vermont and we all recognize how important this is for economic growth in our region. She is a skilled money manager and those skills will come in handy at the state capitol.
I've been honored to serve on the VPL board for the past two years. It is by far the most effective board that I've ever sat on due to Sara's organizational, fundraising, and creative programming skills.
The people of Guilford and Vernon would be best served to send Sara to Montpelier as their State Representative.
