Matt Birong_2101.jpg

VERGENNES — In baseball terms, Vergennes resident Matt Birong’s performance at the recent Democratic state convention in Barre was like hitting a walk-off homer while trailing in the bottom of the ninth. 

The-38-year-old owner of Vergennes eatery 3 Squares was a relative novice in the political world, faced scores of others seeking the same spot, and didn’t even get to campaign — and yet he was elected to be a delegate to next month’s Democratic National Convention in Philadelphia.

By Andy Kirkaldy
