Windsor dems hold pep rally in Hartland

By Curt Peterson

Windsor dems2HARTLAND—Candidates and their advocates began staking and arranging campaign signs in front of Damon Hall in Hartland early Saturday afternoon, in preparation for the Pasta and Politics annual Windsor County Democrats get-together Oct. 13.

Neither Sen. Bernie Sanders nor Sen. Patrick Leahy were able to attend, but Vermont’s sole congressman, Rep. Peter Welch, was scheduled to be there.

State office candidates Christine Hallquist, running for governor; David Zuckerman; hoping for re-election as lieutenant governor, Jim Condos, competing to keep his position as secretary of state; Tom Donovanz state attorney general; and Beth Pearce, running for re-election as state treasurer, were present.

More local, familiar faces included reps Tom Bock and John Bartholomew, and candidates Randall Szott and Zachariah Ralph. State Senators Alison Clarkson, Alice Nitka and Dick McCormack were also present.

After a buffet, abundantly provided by volunteers, the party faithful adjourned to the Town Hall auditorium for dessert, speeches and campaign promises.
