As someone who launched her first legislative campaign before she graduated from college, state Rep. Kesha Ram says she’s used to being underestimated.
“I think what my opponents and others didn’t know about me at that time was that I am an incredibly hard worker,” said Ram, a Burlington Democrat now serving her fourth term in the House even though she has not yet reached age 30.
Ram, a graduate of the University of Vermont, says she is bringing that same work ethic to the 2016 race for lieutenant governor. Though the primary election is more than eight months away, Ram’s zig-zagging itinerary this week included Granby on Sunday, Brattleboro on Monday and then – after returning to Burlington on Tuesday – scheduled stops in Wilmington and Bennington on Wednesday.
