There isn’t a time when I go outside Vermont, that something doesn’t spark me to think of it as a “Vermont Appreciation trip”.
I can’t think of better people or a better place to be, than Vermont.
Or, better work to do, than helping keep Vermont moving forward.
That’s why I’m running for re-election as your State Representative to continue working for you, the people of the Windham 4 District of Putney and Dummerston, in the August 9 Democratic Primary.
As the 2022 Legislature winds down, it’s clear there’s more future work to do. The aftershocks of Covid are still rumbling in our economy, health care and education landscapes. Oil Monopolies are holding us hostage with their wild price increases, even as Climate Change keeps reminding us it’s going to get worse, if we don’t act. The faster we can move away from an oil-based economy, all the better.
Whatever the issue, though, voters can reliably count on me bringing the values of Community, Common Sense, and Justice, in looking out for others. To see broadly, that there is a big picture in any question, and it’s made up of what’s happening at the ground level, for hard working, caring Vermonters.
With the Politics of Grievance being used to turn back the clock on progress, especially on Women’s Rights, Climate Action, and Racial Justice, I want voters to know I will continue to stand up to shine a light to make Progress, with Justice. And, I assure the voters of this district, I am not only “Woke”, but I AM WIDE AWAKE, and plan to stay that way! For me, ‘woke and wide awake ‘, is being stable, open-hearted, open-minded, and assuringly, reliable, especially on matters of Justice.
Among the accomplishments of Progress, with Justice,we’ve made in this session are;
-helping put Prop 5, Reproductive Liberty, on the ballot in November because I trust women to make those choices about their own bodies.-fighting for working families, while billionaires are playing in sandboxes full of cash to send big boy, toy rockets to the heavens and buy and trade companies like they’re playing monopoly with real money.
-working with the Legislative Climate Solutions Caucus, to craft and implement policies in Transportation and Home Heating, to shine light on what can feel like gloom and doom.
-being a founding member of the Racial-Social Equity Caucus in the Statehouse as Vermont and our nation see a changing demographic. With People of Color, Refugees and other marginalized groups coming to our state, I want to be as welcoming to them, as Vermonters were to me and my family, when we showed up here 40 years ago.
I also don’t forget that right here at home, just as important as policy work, is the constituent work. Working to help our neighbors get the health insurance they need, where to go for rental assistance, unemployment, or especially this year, heating assistance.Or, just to listen.
The late US Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg, once said, “Fight for what you care about, but do it in a way that will lead others to work with you.”
With those words as guidance, I’m running for re-election and ask the voters of the Windham 4 voting District of Putney and Dummerston, for their votes on August 9 in the Democratic Primary.
