June 7, 2010, Brattleboro Reformer
BRATTLEBORO -- Four-term Brattleboro Rep. Sarah Edwards announced she will seek another two-year session in Montpelier.
Edwards, currently serving Brattleboro's District 3 seat, said she will continue to serve as a progressive Democrat because that "represents most of the constituents in the district."
In her eight years serving in the Legislature, Edwards said she has taken the support of the district voters very seriously, and if re-elected, will continue listening to their viewpoints and fairly represent them.
"It has been a privilege to serve District 3, and in a sense all of Brattleboro, at the Statehouse in this capacity."
According to Edwards, health care, education and energy will dominate any legislative talks in the upcoming session. A longtime member of the House Committee on Natural Resources and Energy, Edwards will advocate to maintain her service on that committee, particularity because of her knowledge of energy-related issues.
"I hope to continue to represent the community on natural resources and energy," she said. "Over the past five years, we have done a lot to get to a place that will help get us ready for the renewable energy sector of our energy future. This will not only place us in good standing to create hundreds of new jobs, it will also lead us to a more sustainable, reliable and secure energy future. I want to continue to be a part of that conversation."
