I am honored to accept the Democratic Party nomination for state representative for the Lamoille-3 district.
I currently work at the Village Tavern in Jeffersonville as a server and a food runner. I was honored to read the following post by our owner, Geoff Minton, in this week's News and Citizen: Rogers Worked for Me; She'll Get the Job Done
I am very pleased to see that Lucy Rogers is running for the Cambridge / Waterville seat in the Vermont House of Representatives.
Lucy has worked for me at the Village Tavern in Jeffersonville intermittently over the last few years since she graduated high school, and during that time I’ve also come to know her personally. She has shown to me that she is a hard worker and an engaged member of our community. She has the ability to communicate well with a wide range of people on a wide range of subjects.
Lucy has a great way about her to listen to and understand what the person she is talking with is trying to communicate. I know the value of dedicated, hard-working employees. Lucy is a committed employee who puts all her effort into her job or whatever she is doing, and she does it with a smile.
Lucy will see any task through to the end, no matter the time or effort required. Our community will be fortunate to have this same energy representing our interests in Montpelier.
The Vermont Primary Election is August 14. Cambridge residents can vote at the Cambridge Elementary School from 7am - 7pm on that day. Waterville residents can vote at the Waterville Town Hall from 10am - 7pm on that day. You can vote early by stopping at your Town Clerk's office during open hours anytime between now and August 14, or by calling or emailing your Town Clerk to request to have an absentee ballot mailed to you.
If you choose to vote in the Democratic primary, you will see my name on the ballot, thanks to the 65+ signatures that we collected in May. If you choose to vote in the Republican primary, you can show your support by writing in my name on the ballot under "State Representative."

Thank you to everyone who came by our booth at Lamoille County Field Days this past weekend. I also saw many friendly faces on Saturday afternoon while I volunteered making maple cotton candy for the Lamoille County Maple Sugarmakers at the "Sugar Shack." If you missed us this weekend, you can always CONTACT US for more information about the campaign.
“I am running a grassroots campaign that is focused on connecting with people through smaller donations,” Rogers said. “I don’t believe that it should cost tens of thousands of dollars to run for local office, and I have not accepted any PAC money so far.”
Thank you to everyone who came out to show your support and/or learn about my candidacy at the Jeffersonville 4th of July parade and fair! We had a lot of fun, and the event was a huge success. Below are some photos from the day:
I announced my campaign on Front Porch Forum today! Here is the post, in case you missed it:
I am pleased to announce to Front Porch Forum readers from Cambridge and Waterville that I am running to represent you in the Vermont House of Representatives.
I'm a lifelong Waterville resident and a graduate of Lamoille Union High School and the University of Vermont. My work and studies have taken me to Western Canada for grizzly bear projects and to Beijing, China to study Mandarin, but I have decided to stay in my hometown because I love this community and the people in it. I hope that being your representative will allow me to continue to contribute to the district that has given me so much.
Our community is built around strong, local schools and strong, local businesses, and I'm running to protect both. I am committed to defending each town's ability to make its own decisions about its schools, and to improving internet access and public transportation so that young people can stay here and work here. A successful community cares for its people and cares for its land, so I'll be working to increase access to nutritious food and high quality health care, to fight for our farmers, and to protect our natural landscapes.
I look forward to meeting you at your doors in the coming months and telling you more about why I would be honored to have your vote on November 6th. If you would like to reach me or to find out more about my candidacy, you can call me at 802.730.0604, email me at firstname.lastname@example.org, visit my campaign Facebook page at www.facebook.com/lucyrogersvt, or check out my website (going live very soon).
