Southeast Vermont Recap, March 2019


Thank you to the Windham County Legislators who were able to come to the Early Childhood Day at the Legislature lunch on Wednesday and to all of you for being open to constituents during much of your ‘free’ time.

Based on a discussion at that lunch about engaging together differently from only providing data and stories, we will be arranging a small meeting after the end of the session to think creatively about policy together. This discussion will be open to all interested parties. In the meantime, please contact Dora Levinson if you are in need of individual or organizational data or stories during the remainder of the session and we will work to put them together.

We are incredibly grateful to our legislators for their passion and interest in early childhood.
