Letter: Durfee thanks voters, cheers turnout, civility
Nov. 9, 2020
To the Editor:
I would like to thank everyone in Shaftsbury, Glastenbury, and Sunderland who supported my re-election to the Vermont House. Thanks also to Victor Harwood for running, and to everyone at the Town Clerk’s office, the poll workers, and everyone else who assisted on Tuesday.
Democracy was on display this election, with an historic 80 percent turnout in our district. Civility was on display too, with voters waiting patiently and respectfully for their turn to vote on Tuesday. And thoughtfulness and consideration were also on display, as every last Shaftsbury resident who chose to vote in person — some 700 people — was willing to wear a mask into the polls.
I’m proud to be representing this community in Montpelier, and will continue to do so to the best of my ability during the coming legislative session.
David K. Durfee,
