Copeland Hanzas sails to victory in Vt. secretary of state race
MONTPELIER, Vt. (WCAX) - Former state representative Sarah Copeland Hanzas will become Vermont’s next secretary of state after defeating Republican H. Brooke Paige Tuesday.
The Democrat has lived in Vermont nearly all her life and served in the Legislature for the past 18 years representing Bradford. She ran for the open seat being vacated by Jim Condos. She says she wants to focus on issues including making sure civics education is taught in schools and creating a voter guide for Vermonters.
Republican H. Brooke Paige, a perennial GOP ballot placeholder candidate, also ran this year for treasurer.
