Letter: Time to lose the labels

To the Editor:

Vermonters who are interested in promoting bipartisanship in Congress are invited to attend the No Labels' Problem Solvers Conference on March 1-2 in Washington, D.C.

With leadership from our own Congressman, Peter Welch, a growing number of legislators are embracing the No Labels mission and vision, working across the aisle to bridge the political divide, puting "country before party" as they wrestle with some of our nation's most pressing problems. Founded by citizens who were frustrated with business as usual on Capitol Hill, No Labels has been working tirelessly to bring a new politics of goals-focused problem solving to government, calling on our leaders — no matter what their political party or viewpoint — to come together to "stop fighting and start fixing".

No Labels depends upon average citizens (that's you and me!) to pressure members of Congress to become No Labels "Problem Solvers." Instead of remaining frustrated or pessimistic, please consider attending this important conference as part of the Vermont delegation.

Get to know No Labels at nolabels.org. For more information or to register for the conference, contact Daniel Conway, National Field Manager, at (202) 588-1990 or dan.conway@nolabels.org.
