Sen. Bray reflects on 2018 season; hopes to win another term

Posted on June 7, 2018 |
By John Flowers



Bray, Chris ONLINE 2010.jpg

MONTPELIER — Sen. Chris Bray, D-New Haven, was thinking big when he first ran for the Vermont Senate six years ago. His goals were pretty much all predicated on producing systematic changes to Vermont’s agricultural, economic and environmental landscapes.

So it’s no coincidence he has, during his legislative career, taken a lead role in the Farm-to-Plate, renewable energy, Act 250, and clean water bills — initiatives designed to prove their worth in the next five to 10 years.

ADDISON COUNTY — An Aug. 14 primary election will be required to whittle down a surplus of Democrats competing for Addison County sheriff and the two seats representing the Addison-4 district in the Vermont House.

movie review 5 31 18 Life o Party.jpg

Life of the Party — Running Time: 1:45 — Rating: PG-13

“Life of the Party” wins a Gold Star in the race for being the worst movie of the year. It was released with a swish of pre-release publicity that promised Melissa McCarthy and her director husband Ben Falcone were coming up with a fine comedy. In a year that so far has given us relatively few standout movies along with a mountain of weak ones, this one goes to the bottom of the heap.
