Jamie Zahlaway Belsito greeting members of the Burlington Democratic Committee
- Jan. 27, 2020
-- The Burlington Democratic Town Committee recently hosted Candidate for Representative to the 6th Congressional District, Jamie Zahlaway Belsito.
Belsito was excited to speak to the Burlington Democratic Committee and gathered Democrats last Wednesday, January 22nd, at the Town Hall Annex in Burlington. The evening provided an opportunity for the community to hear from the current State Representative Kenneth Gordon and to hear Belsito talk about her campaign to be the next Congresswoman in Washington representing the communities of the 6th Congressional District.
"It's wonderful to be here, my family spent a lot of money on me at Patterson's Dance Store growing up." Belsito shared, I'm from this district and I'm running because I am committed to representing the hard-working people of the district where I've lived and where I grew up". Belsito touted her over 20 plus years of experience passing legislation at the federal and state level and her continued commitment to the District."Burlington has a lot of economic opportunity, however, transportation is a huge issue because people can't get to their jobs because 128 is a parking lot. For me a large part of going to Congress is having close relationships with the communities and the state representatives to help identify what programs and monies are available at the federal level to help take care of the communities back in the district. My campaign is really about getting back to putting the families and communities of the 6th District first once again,'' said Belsito.
Jamie Zahlaway Belsito is the only woman running in the 6th Congressional District. The Democratic Primary Election is on Tuesday, September 1, 2020. To learn more about Jamie Zahlaway Belsito's campaign go to www.BelsitoforCongress.com.
