Vote for Jeanne Connor and Jeannie Jenkins
Knowing and understanding our community is an important reason for being a member of the Bennington Select Board. In the last 20 years Jeanne Conner and Jeannie Jenkins have been on a wide selection of boards and involved with many community organizations and projects.
Business related organizations include the Bennington Area Chamber of Commerce, Bennington Economic Development Partners, Better Bennington Corporation, and Bennington County Regional Commission. All of which work together to bring businesses to the community, help business stay and grow, promote a healthy business climate and work with planning the community development in one way or another.
Citizen oriented organizations including Bennington Project Independence, Shires Housing, Community Built Park, Lake Paran, BSD School Board and volunteering for children programs within the school system. These activities involve them directly with the good people of Bennington.
Both are involved in the many cultural and historical activities, town wide events, tourism, and the efforts to maintain downtown Bennington as the commercial and cultural heart of the community.
It all adds up to two women who are community engaged, are ready and willing to use their knowledge and experiences to advocate for the people of Bennington on the Town Select Board.
Vote for Jeanne Conner and Jeannie Jenkins on March 1st.
