Washington County Senate hopefuls on Stowe issues

There are five Democrats competing in the primary in the three-seat district.

• Anne Cummings, 75, of Montpelier, incumbent

• Jared Duval, 38, of Montpelier

• Jeremy Hansen, 44, of Berlin

• Andrew Perchlik, 54, of Marshfield, incumbent

• Anne Watson, 40, of Montpelier

Stowe may geographically still belong to Lamoille County, but when it comes to representation in the Vermont Senate, the town is now politically part of Washington County, after its significant population growth in the past decade made it too big to remain in the single-senator Lamoille district.

The upshot is Stoweites will now have three senators representing it in the 30-person chamber, instead of just one.
