Update on the SOS race

What’s SOS? Shorthand for “Secretary of State.” With Deb Markowitz seeking higher office, the job is open. There’s some vigorous, under-the-radar campaigning going on.

Chris Roy, Republican candidate for secretary of state, reported Monday he had received an endorsement from former Lt. Gov. Barbara Snelling. Roy plans a fundraiser on March 25 in Barre. Check here for details.

What’s the Democratic challenger doing? Besides visiting lots of towns, Charles Merriman is revamping his Web site . Looks like his campaign will have a new color scheme – yellow and green.

There are two other people who have said they are seriously weighing runs for secretary of state, but neither has made it official. They are Democrat Jim Condos, a former senator, and Republican Jason Gibbs, commissioner of forest, parks and recreation.

Jim Condos is the best candidate - he has the background and experience.
Be careful what you wish for - you may live to regret it!
Condos has a moustache, and if there's one thing Vermont voters hate it's a moustache. Last candidate elected statewide with a moustache was Deane Davis. Nobody under 50 would ever vote for someone with a moustache . . . unless there was a beard or goatee to balance it out.
Don't you think that is the least of voters worries about Condos?
Chris Roy is an ultra conservative!

Heck he has Peg Flory and John McLaughry singing his praises!
Anthony Pollina for Secretary of State.
Condos reminds me of the dad from "Webster", without the lovability.
Randy Brock for SOS!
Chris Pearson for SOS!
Chris Pearson would be great!
Go Chris!
