Reps. James and Bongartz to Hold Zoom Constituent Coffee Hours

State Reps. Kathleen James and Seth Bongartz will host online constituent coffee hours on the second Saturday of each month during the 2021 legislative session. Due to the pandemic, the meetings will be held via Zoom.

Set for January 9, February 13, March 13, April 10, May 8 and June 12 from 9 to 10:30 a.m., the informal Zoom meetings will offer constituents in the Bennington-4 district — Arlington, Manchester, Sandgate and Sunderland — the opportunity to hear updates from the statehouse and to share ideas, questions and concerns with Kath and Seth. To join the coffee hour, please email [email protected] us at least 30 minutes prior to each Saturday’s meeting for the Zoom link. We’ll also post the information on her legislative Facebook page (@sethbongartzVTstaterep).

To protect the health and safety of statehouse staff, legislators and the public, the House of Representatives will conduct all of its work virtually over Zoom during the 2021 session. Members will work remotely from home and vote using a secure app on mobile phones (plus voice vote for roll calls). All floor debates and committee meetings will be live-streamed and available for public viewing on YouTube at
