December 3rd legislative forum

Rep. Theresa Wood and Rep. Tom Stevens, both Democrats representing Waterbury, spoke at a legislative forum held in December at Thatcher Brook Primary School.

There wasn’t any drama in the race for two Vermont House seats representing Waterbury, Bolton, Huntington and Buels Gore. In fact, there was no race.

Waterbury Democrats Tom Stevens and Theresa Wood were unopposed for re-election to two-year terms.

During the past legislative session, Stevens — a state legislator since 2009 — was vice chair of the House Committee on General, Housing and Military Affairs.

“I’m very excited to get back to work,” Stevens said. “We have a lot on our plate and it’s great to get through the election season and get back to work representing my district.”

Wood is finishing her first full term. In 2015, she was appointed by Gov. Peter Shumlin to replace Rebecca Ellis, who took a job with the Department of Environmental Conservation.

During the last legislative session, she was clerk of the House Committee on Human Services.

“Obviously, I’m excited to return back and I’m honored to represent Waterbury and Bolton, Huntington and Buels Gore,” Wood said. “We all need to work together to do what is best for Vermont, and that is the attitude I have when I go to work at the Statehouse.”
