In Lamoille County, Vermont, with fall colors at their peak, Lucy Rogers and Zac Mayo are running against each other for a state House seat. He's a Republican. She's a Democrat. Both have visited, or plan to visit, all 2,000+ homes in the district before the mid-term election. They both want to win in the worst way.

Recently they debated the issues at a town library. He wants less government. She's concerned about healthcare. But at the end, something strange happened. They asked for a few extra minutes and rearranged some furniture. Then they sat down and played a duet. A Democrat and a Republican united in perfect harmony. Almost everyone in the audience wiped away a tear. And now in northern Vermont it's not unusual to see homes with signs for BOTH candidates in the yard. No matter who is elected, the winner is civility.
Yay! True harmony in practice. What a great election they will have.ReplyDelete
