Sierra Club Endorsed logoSierra Club Vermont

The Sierra Club – Vermont Chapter has endorsed my candidacy for the Vermont House of Representatives, “in appreciation of your demonstrated commitment to protecting the environment and advancing social justice.”
I am thrilled to have this endorsement. There is a strong connection between environmental protection and social justice. As House Judiciary Chair, I was glad to provide leadership on these issues including medical monitoring and strict liability for manufacturers and users of toxics, citizen’s right to action, and access to justice for all.

Rights and Democracy Vermont Endorsed logoRights & Democracy

From RAD Vermont: “A Rights & Democracy endorsement is a signal that a candidate is already a community leader on the issues that reflect RAD’s values and will champion those causes in the Legislature. A RAD endorsement comes with the expectation that elected candidates will work with RAD members on legislation of shared interest to their community. In that way, it’s more than just an election year activity—it’s the start (or continuation) of a working relationship.”
