I had retired from my 2-year temp job helping to run elections. Yippee, summer! 3 weeks later an employee called & asked if I would PLEASE return for the summer primary election & possibly through the November elections. Staff were leaving her to do it alone in the largest city in Vermont. I said yes. 😳 My reading will go downhill. 😩

This is a photo of kids picking cucumbers. In my teen years I laid on one of these for three summers, picking.

Jas16 Oh wow. I am sorry for the change in your plans but really appreciative of your efforts and those of everyone working to help our elections run smoothly. 3mo
Amiable Thank you for stepping up to go back! As @jas16 says, it‘s so important right now to have good, honest people working to ensure smooth elections. 3mo
Suet624 @Amiable @Jas16 Thank you. It‘s true…it‘s so important. I‘m really happy to help in this way. Just had some really fun plans in place that I needed to change. 🤣🤣 3mo

Reggie Way to be a good citizen/friend Sue. 3mo
Suet624 @Reggie oh my word! Reggie! How wonderful to hear from you. Your comment immediately made me think of a Vermont punk band from the mid-80‘s that sang a song about being a good citizen. If you‘re interested, it‘s pretty fun. https://youtu.be/-nJzmxJejg8 3mo
kspenmoll Sue, I will add my accolades to you for your commitment to the democratic process during a time of discouragement. Wow! I never knew cucumbers were picked that way! 2mo
ValerieAndBooks At first I thought this picture was a crime scene 😳. Glad you‘re helping things go smoothly! 2mo
Suet624 @ValerieAndBooks haha. Yeah, I can see that. 2mo
