Barre, Vt., Friday May 20, 2022- Bridget Grace a Washington County Deputy State’s
Attorney is formally announcing her candidacy for State’s Attorney. Current Washington
County State’s Attorney Rory Thibault recently announced his run for Attorney General.
Grace has been serving as a Deputy State’s Attorney under Thibault since 2019. Grace
previously worked in private practice as a Criminal Defense Attorney and Public
Defender. Grace also serves on the Vermont Board of Bar Examiners (A group called
upon to proctor and grade the exam all Attorneys must pass to practice law in
Vermont).
Bridget’s statement on her candidacy-
“I look forward to continuing the great work and partnerships our office has
formed with the community and other stakeholders, including those in Advocacy,
Prevention and Law Enforcement. As someone who was born here, graduated
High School here, and now raising my kids here, we all know Washington County
is a safe place to live, work and do business, but we’re not immune to big city
problems.
Issues such as Domestic Violence, Substance Abuse, and Mental Health cases
are in the forefront of today’s courts and all have a direct link to the success of
our communities. These will be among the issues our office will focus on.
As a current Deputy State’s Attorney and experienced Litigator I have, and will
continue to put victims first. My plan is to continue working hard for our
communities while maintaining a thoughtful balance between all victims,
community expectations, and holding people accountable for their actions.”
Grace, 39, a Washington County native, was born at Central Vermont Hospital and
graduated from Harwood Union High School. Grace went on to graduate from
Duquesne University in Pittsburgh in 2003, and received her Law Degree from the
University of Detroit Mercy School of Law in 2007. Grace resides in Fayston with her
partner, Mike Bishop, a Realtor, and together they have 4 kids ages 11-17.
