Political notes from Free Press staff writers Terri Hallenbeck, Sam Hemingway and Nancy Remsen



Offices near you

The Democratic and Republican parties are doing their part to revitalize office space in some of Vermont's downtowns.

Each is opening what they claim to be a record number of satellite offices -- all to help them reach out to voters. These extra offices provide bases of operation for volunteers to, for example, make all those dinner-hour phone calls to persuade you to vote for their candidates.

The Vermont Democratic Party will have a total of seven regional offices. That includes the party's headquarters in Burlington, plus Bennington, St. Albans, Rutland, Montpelier, White River Junction and Brattleboro. Kristina Althoff said Windham Democrats opened two additional satellite offices, one in Whitingham and another in Bellows Falls.

The Vermont Republican Party has also spread out with more office locations than ever before, according to Tayt Brooks, executive director. There are now offices in Williston, St. Johnsbury, St. Albans, Springfield and the headquarters in Montpelier.

The Vermont Progressive Party is sticking with just one office -- in Montpelier.

Nancy: the Republicans also have an office in Rutland.
Wow. All those offices and not one clue.
Ha, ha, ha...............
