VT Spelling Bee.png

Flabbergasted! Fervorous! Unmoored!

Those are some of the words Vermont middle-schoolers faced in this year's Vermont Statewide Spelling Bee. See how you stack up to the competition, and hats off to these young sesquipedalians!

This week on Common Ground

NH Rep Russell Muirhead (Hanover) joins show hosts VT State Reps Jim Masland to compare and contrast the NH and VT state government, our citizen legislatures (in contrast to professional ones in other states), and election legislation affecting voter enfranchisement, among other topics in this casual forum that seeks to illuminate the workings of democracy at the local level and find common ground.

Viewer questions are welcome!
