What is your favorite location, place, building, or spot in Royalton? Why?

That's a tough question.  There are a lot of great spaces here, but if I had to choose one I would choose the green, just because it's a public space, so many people can gather here, do so many events; there's been music here, there's a little fair for kids, students will hang out here. I think I like the green.

What do you think makes Royalton unique or different from other places you have lived or visited?

I feel like there's a certain kind of closeness and friendliness to the community.  And it might be because it's smaller and things are more intimate that way, but I think there's something more to it. Again on the green there are farmers markets, so people from all over the area will come to Royalton, right here, just to share in that whole experience.

What is the most challenging aspect of life in a small Vermont town like Royalton?

The same thing that makes it great is what probably makes it bad-the intimacy.  So like, if someone does something bad, you're gonna be marked for life. Not that I've done anything, but I feel like there's that.  But hopefully there's coming back from that and chance for redemption.

What Royalton resident made a positive difference in your life?

What do you want people to know about your town?

I would say not to underestimate the town.  There's already been a lot of big things. I feel like it's a model for the future and where things could be headed.  I think the law school was a part of that.  It's a hub of so many interesting people doing things related to the environment.

What is your wish for your life? What is a wish for your town?

To keep doing what you're doing. Don't let go of this because it's beautiful.  There's so much around would be a shame to see that go.
