Real VT: Zephyr's new campaign

No, she's not running for anything...Russ Ellis is. Russ is a former headmaster of Rock Point School, where I worked as a dorm counselor a few years back. He's running for Burlington City Council, for a seat he used to occupy before he was unseated in the last election.

On Vermont Daily Briefing, Philip Baruth spins a good yarn about a campaign strategy session at which Zephyr Teachout volunteered to help set up Russ's email list. That's kind of like holding tryouts for your band's new drummer, and having Jon Fishman drop in and ask to back you up. Or like playing a pick-up basketball game at the Y, and having Taylor Coppenrath ask to be on your team. Or like, um, uh... I'm running out of Vermont celebrities...
