Senator Dick McCormack wins his 12th term in the Vermont Senate

Senator Dick McCormack is celebrating his re-election bid tonight from The Stone Hearth Inn in Chester with volunteers from Windsor County.

Senator McCormack issued the following statement:

“I’m filled with gratitude towards so many people who worked to help me in my re-election bid: my wife and campaign manager Cindy Metcalf, my team-playing running mates Alison Clarkson and Alice Nitka, campaign workers--Alex Kelly and Sarah Callander, Windsor County Democratic Chair Bill Kuch, the Windsor County Democratic Committee and the many dozens of volunteers who gave their time, energy, money and front yards.

Thanks also to the Upper Valley Young Liberals who work hard and give old folks reason for hope in the future, and the Progressive Party for unity in our common progressive goals.
I thank my Independent and Republican opponents for a mutually respectful campaign, so different from the ugliness at the national level.

Above all I thank the people of Windsor County for again making me the gift of their trust, challenging me to work on environmentally responsible prosperity, tax fairness, health care, and the complexities of school funding and governance. I’ll do my best to be worthy of their trust.”

  1. Even the Cubs broke their World Series drought this year. But Windsor County just continues its long losing streak by electing a pathetic caricature.


Please keep your comments polite and on-topic. No profanity
