One Vermonter has had a close-up view of Ukraine’s recent electoral crisis. Leslie McCuaig of Charlotte works for the Institute for Sustainable Communities, and she’s the office director in Kiev. ISC is a Vermont organization that helps communities in existing and emerging democracies solve problems and plan for the future. Over the last few years, McCuaig has worked to increase citizen participation in public life in Ukraine under a U.S. government grant.
