Democratic candidate for Governor, Sue Minter has seized upon the imminent visit of Donald Trump, King of Mean, Imp of Intolerance, as an opportunity to encourage Vermonters’ native generosity to folks in need:
“I encourage all of you to devote either your time, money or both next Thursday, the day that Trump has chosen to speak in Vermont, to a cause that you stand for. A cause that helps bring us together, not tear us apart. A cause that represents compassion, kindness and love, not disrespect, bigotry and hate. There are so many Vermonters engaged in activities that symbolize these Vermont values. Take Megan and Seth Frenzen who are currently in Greece devoting their time and medical skills to the thousands of Syrian refugees. Or the trio of South Burlington high school students who have spent the last month gathering blankets, winter coats and other supplies to ship to the refugees. It is these efforts and the values they reflect that make us proud to be American.”
She offers the following suggestions of ways in which you might contribute to these affirmative efforts:
