State Representative Pat Boyd was in Woodstock on Saturday to meet with voters about the upcoming election. Boyd and a team of volunteers spread out across the town to talk to voters about the issues on their minds as November approaches.
Voters expressed concern about the state's budget situation. In the last legislative session, Boyd was instrumental in forcing two historic bipartisan budget agreements. He also fought to include a spending cap in the last budget so that tax dollars don't go to waste.
Another major issue voters raised was dairy farming. Recently, the agriculture sector has been hit hard, especially when it comes to local dairy farms. That's why Pat Boyd teamed up with Democratic and Republican legislators from the area and fought for more than $1.5 million in funding for dairy farming.
State Senate candidate John Perrier joined Pat in Woodstock to talk to voters. John's name will be on the ballot next to Pat's in November as he seeks the state senate seat vacated by Tony Guglielmo's retirement.
