Create an economy that works for all Vermonters, not just the wealthy few

Today, too many Vermonters struggle to care for and support themselves and their families. Making paid family leave part of every job, creating affordable housing, and expanding access to high quality child care improves the lives of Vermont’s working families, puts more money into Vermont’s small businesses and helps our communities to thrive.

Affordable Housing

Affordable housing is at the forefront of legislative priorities as we strive for a Vermont that works for everyone. The challenges are significant, with the dream of homeownership feeling elusive, and rising costs impacting our daily lives. Despite challenges from Governor Scott, we've successfully channeled hundreds of millions into statewide housing projects. Let's collectively transform the dream of affordable housing into reality for every Vermonter, ensuring a secure and affordable haven and advancing the thriving Vermont we envision.


Creating a Healthy Environment

Vermont is one of the cleanest, most environmentally pristine states in our country.  Our environment, and the health and economic benefits it provides, is under threat from long ignored pollution to our streams and lakes and from climate change. That’s why I voted for a long term dedicated funding source to clean up our water.

Clean, renewable energy will safeguard the health and futures of our families and communities. Weaning our economy off fossil fuels and generating more of Vermont’s energy locally not only addresses climate change, it strengthens our economy by keeping our energy dollars in-state. Cleaning up our waterways, weaning our economy off of fossil fuels, and generating more of Vermont’s energy locally not only address climate change, it strengthens our economic future. That’s why I support the Global Warming Solutions Act and the Climate Transportation Initative.

Fiercely Protecting Reproductive Rights

The decision about whether or when to become a parent is a deeply personal and private matter. Once someone has made the important and very personal decision to have an abortion, it’s not for politicians to interfere. Our job is to promote people’s health and well-being, not impose our beliefs on others. That's why PR 5 is so important, an effort I helped lead to update our state constitution to enshrine reproductive rights. Please join me in voting YES on PR 5 in November!

Healthy Families, Healthy Communities

The cost of health insurance is one of the biggest challenges faced by Vermonters. Republicans in Washington are dismantling the Affordable Care Act and cutting funding for Medicare and Medicaid. Making health insurance more affordable and ensuring Vermonters have access to treatment without barriers for drug addiction and mental health is critical.
