Letter: Mrowicki has best interest of Vermont at heart
I am writing to urge the re-election of Michael Mrowicki to represent Windham, District-4 in the Vermont House of Representatives. I've had the privilege of knowing Mike since before he first ran for office.
Before moving to Vermont I spent some time working with the Legislature in another state. I saw that campaigning for office and working for constituents after someone has been elected are two different jobs. I can say without reservation that I have seen Mike work hard at the job of Windham-4 Representative to the benefit his constituents and Vermont in general.
Mike provided leadership opposing Act 46 and other initiatives to shift local control to centralized control in Montpelier. As a Democrat he has helped resist the chaos of the current White House that is spilling over into Vermont. This includes prohibiting federal access to our state voter lists that was requested by the President's so-called Election Fraud Commission. It also includes codifying environmental laws that were formerly EPA rules, now being gutted by the national Administration, protections previously enforced dating back to President Nixon. He offered on the House floor a Bill protecting LGBTQ Rights by preventing conversion therapy. That Bill passed unanimously on a voice vote. He also helped pass a Bill addressing concerns expressed about systemic racism in Vermont.
I have also seen Mike many times provide individual constituent service. In my opinion, this is one of the most important jobs for an elected official.
If you want a Representative who has the best interests of his constituents and the best interest of Vermont in his heart, and someone who has the intent and experience to work for both, then I urge you to consider voting for Michael Mrowicki.
