Weekly Campaign Update: August 12th

Another busy campaign week is in the books! Alex has been working hard visiting all parts of the county, meeting new people, and continuing to gain support. Here is the weekly update from the campaign.

A fun night at the ballpark!
Last Saturday, Alex attended the Vermont Lake Monsters game who, for one game only, changed their name to the "Vermont Maple Kings." The team celebrated a sweet victory on the field while also showing support for Vermont's maple industry. Alex bumped into Governor Phil Scott and long-time friend Early Handy at the game.

"Building the Momentum" Rally a Success!
70 supporters and volunteers spent an evening with Alex to begin preparations for the next phase of the campaign and to rally momentum! Alex received endorsements from prominent Burlington business leaders Earl Handy (Handy's Lunch) and Bob Conlon (Leunigs). A big thank you to Noel Donnellan (Nectar's) for hosting the event and supporting Alex!

A member of the press attended the event! You can read the write-up on the campaign by clicking here.

Alex Endorses Governor Phil Scott
On Monday, Alex issued a statement on social media endorsing Governor Phil Scott in the Republican Primary. 

"It is imperative that we re-elect Governor Scott to continue the good work that he is doing for Vermont. I ask you to join me in voting for Governor Phil Scott in the August 14th Primary." - August 14th

Later that evening, Alex and the campaign team joined Governor Scott and other candidates for a sign-wave in South Burlington.


Another busy day in Essex on Thursday
Thursday evening, Alex spent time in Essex hosting a town hall with Rep. Linda Myers and State Senate candidate Dana Maxfield. After, Alex headed to the "Trucks, Taps & Tunes" event at the Essex Shoppes and Cinemas.
