Senator Bernie Sanders met with Brittny Buck of Bridport and Heather Osicky of Ferrisburg. Both are members of the Vergennes, Vermont Chapter of the Future Farmers of America (FFA) and were in the nation's capital attending the 2007 Washington Leadership Conference. The week-long program helps FFA members improve their leadership, team building and citizenship skills to prepare them for leadership roles in their chapters, communities and their future careers.
Also attending the meeting was Dori Sharp from Colchester, Vermont. Dori is a member of the National Young Leaders Conference, which brings high school students from around the country to Washington, D.C. as part of the group's commitment to gaining a better understanding of the political process.
