To the Editor:
I would like to share my support for Lucy Rogers for state representative from Cambridge and Waterville.
Growing up together, Lucy showed an abundance of compassion, practicality and determination, and she has expressed her thirst for knowledge through many outlets. As a friend, she’s always been available to listen with an open mind and ear, and she encourages everyone to do their best at whatever it is that they’re doing.
We attended high school together, and Lucy was always hitting the books and participating in school activities, which led her to be our class valedictorian and to graduate from UVM with honors. That same thirst for knowledge and hard-working personality have brought Lucy all over the world, learning and sharing what she knew along the way, and then bringing it back home to share with this community.
I believe that all these attributes will make Lucy a great representative for us, and I hope you will join me in voting for her on Nov. 6.
