An open letter to Congressman Bernie Sanders, Senator Jim Jeffords, and Senator Patrick Leahy,
In the aftermath of Hurricane Katrina and then Rita, Vermont citizens led the way. Vermonters were among the first, if not the first, to deliver truckloads of supplies to the victims of the disaster. Bottled water, diapers, shampoo, food… individuals purchased provisions little by little, but our combined efforts resulted in a vast supply. Vermonters opened their hearts and their wallets to help those truly in need.
