His Mittens were made by Westford Elementary school teacher Jen Ellis. “I think it’s wonderful that he represents Vermont that way in bringing a handcraft item with him on this awesome historic day” said Jen. The mitten was a gift given to Mr.Sanders.
His inauguration fashion was even asked by Gayle King on CBS news, and the answer for his outfit choice made a humble but convincing statement for his political beliefs
“In Vermont, we dress, we know something about the cold,” said Bernie Sanders, “And we’re not so concerned about good fashion. We just want to keep warm. And that’s what I did today.”
