CONSTITUTION DAY – Although it’s not a partisan or political event, candidates for statewide office are likely to be in attendance at a Constitution Day celebration Saturday, September 17 on the Statehouse Lawn Montpelier, 10 AM to 12:30 PM. The event is free. 

The US Constitution was signed on September 17, 1787. 

“Some may ask why the Constitution is still so important today,” Libertarian candidate for U.S. House said in a recent campaign statement. “The founders of the United States realized that this American experiment was incredible – the first-ever in history example of self-governance informed by God-given wisdom without the over-arching enforcement by a monarchy, aristocracy, or ruling class. Instead, We the People” are in charge.”

Milton House incumbent endorses candidate – Milton Rep. John Palasik has endorsed House candidate Chris Taylor for one of the two seats in the Chittenden-Franklin district which will represent Milton and part of Georgia in the next legislative session.

“I previously served with Chris Taylor on the Milton Selectboard and I feel his thoughtful decision making process, attention to detail and open mindedness will be an asset to the Legislature. Chris will do a great job representing the district,” Palasik said. 

Representative Palasik is not seeking re-election to the statehouse but will serve until the completion of his term in January when the new representatives are seated.
