Dick McCormack has announced that he will seek re-election to the state Senate, representing Windsor County, the Windham town of Londonderry and the Rutland County town of Mt. Holly.

He filed petitions last Tuesday to have his name placed on the Democratic Party ballot for the Tuesday, Aug. 9 Primary to qualify as a Democratic candidate in the November election.

A resident of Bethel, McCormack was appointed in 1989 and has been re-elected 11 times since. He currently serves on the Senate Health and Welfare Committee and the Senate Appropriations Committee. “Vermont’s economy, property taxes and universal affordable health care are all frustrating issues that require our continued attention,” McCormack said. “If re-elected, I remain committed to tackling these issues.”

McCormack has lived in the Bethel area since 1970. He is a well-known local musician and story-teller and has been an adjunct professor in the Vermont state college system. Over the years he has served on many boards including Vermont Public Interest Research Group, Adult Basic Education, AIDS Community Resource Network, Emerge Family Access Center, Champlain Valley Folk Festival, Earth Right Institute, Operation Laundry List and the Vermont Sierra Club. Prior to being appointed to the Senate, he served on the Bethel Board of Civil Authority and as chairman of the District III Environmental Commission.

Voters in the August Democratic Primary will nominate three candidates for state Senate.
