Thanks to BROC

I would like to thank Beth Johnson of BROC in Bennington for the tremendous advice and assistance offered regarding an emergency need from a constituent in my district, Bennington, 4. Beth spent almost three hours with us in her office on a hot and humid summer day. Beth solved the problem! This is by no means the first time the BROC has come to the rescue. I have been fortunate to partner with them for 15 years when issues of people needing fuel assistance, food, heath care, or weatherization for homes has come to my attention. BROC has been on the job for 50 years working to change conditions that either cause poverty or stand in the way of its elimination. BROC is great! Thank you Beth Johnson and the entire BROC team for all you do. I look forward to thanking you in person when Sen. Patrick Leahy joins you in celebrating BROC's 51st Anniversary, at the Holiday Inn in Rutland on Oct. 11 at noon.
