Chris Brown announces candidacy for Vt House

Dear Editor,

I’m Chris Brown and I’m running to represent Castleton in the Vermont House of Representatives.

I’m proud and excited at the prospect of representing the citizens of my hometown in the Legislature. I’m a lifelong resident of Castleton and a 10 generation Vermonter. I feel my decades of business experience and my Republican values will serve all of us well as we face daunting challenges ahead statewide.

I consider myself to be practical and pragmatic and while my political philosophy’s are Republican, I’m more interested in results than labels. I ask for your support.

My wife, Andrea, and I have been married 36 years. Together we’ve raised two daughters and now have two son-in-law and two grandchildren.

Chris Brown, Castleton
