Vermont Welcomes it's Newest Citizens

Essex, Vermont - Dozens of new Americans took the oath Wednesday afternoon to become U.S. citizens.
 
61 people from 27 different countries can now call themselves Americans.
 
The naturalization ceremony was held at Essex High School. For some people, it can take years to become naturalized.

Keynote speaker, Julio Thompson from the Vermont Attorney General's office, reminded the new Americans they all have different points of view, but to speak up whether for good or bad.  "Speak to your neighbors, your community, and that includes us in the government." said Thompson.  "In the Vermont Attorney General's Office we try very hard, but frankly we need your voice for us to be at our best. Tell us what needs fixing."
