Quotes on the Issues
We support universal after-school and pre-k programs, free in-state college tuition, and will work to uplift the trades and other training programs that build our workforce.
We will work to protect all Vermonters from discrimination, bias, and unfair policies and work to uplift those who have not had the opportunities that others have had.
We believe healthcare is a human right. Every Vermonter should have access to healthcare, regardless of their employment status. No one should die or be forced into bankruptcy as a result of a health condition.
We will invest in infrastructure and programs to ensure Vermonters who prefer a rural setting, from farmers to loggers to telecommuters and families with kids, have resources and employment opportunities in their communities.
We will focus on solutions that support entrepreneurs who want to create businesses in our state, support a $15 minimum wage and ensure hard-working Vermonters have safe and affordable housing in the communities where they live.
We will work to protect our environment while also ensuring the solutions we propose do not place additional burden on hardworking, rural and older Vermonters.
