An endorsement for Austin
I’m delighted to endorse Democrat Sarita Austin’s candidacy for state representative for District 9-2 (Malletts Bay area).

Throughout her life, Sarita has demonstrated a commitment to serving her community. Over the years, Sarita has acquired a great deal of experience and knowledge by serving on local school boards, school/community safety committees, local advisory boards, as well as volunteering as an EMT at the Williston Fire Department. Sarita is currently a member of the Colchester Planning Commission and is a volunteer at the McClure-Miller Respite House.

Sarita’s core principles include economic growth and opportunity for Colchesterites and Vermonters in general by attracting, developing and retaining jobs in emerging economies. She believes in quality education for all students. She believes in protecting and preserving our natural resources. As she says: “The Bay and Beyond.”

If you haven’t had the opportunity to talk with Sarita as she campaigns in your neighborhood, please contact her at or give her a call at 310-4698.

I believe Sarita has the temperament and collaborative experience to represent you thoughtfully in Montpelier. She will work for solutions and for the common good of all Vermonters.

Rep. Maureen P. Dakin
