State rep: The buck has a new place to stop

Tristan Roberts

I am pleased to report that the Vermont House of Representatives and Senate met as planned on Wednesday, January 4,  to open the 77th General Assembly.
In the House, we elected Speaker Jill Krowinski of Burlington, and then it was our turn to take the oath of office.
Fun fact about our Vermont Constitution!  When taking the oath, you have the option of swearing to God (“so help me God”) or affirming one’s word “under the pains and penalties of perjury.” I chose the latter, but not for reasons you might expect.
