Issues

As Vermont’s Lieutenant Governor I’ve traveled to every corner of our state, hearing directly from Vermonters about the most pressing issues impacting their lives.

As Vermont’s Congresswoman, I’ll deliver real solutions for the four central crises facing Vermont: workforce, housing, caregiving, and climate, and I’ll continue our legacy of leadership in Washington on foreign policy and civil rights.

Workforce

As Lieutenant Governor, I’ve talked with hundreds of Vermonters across the state directly impacted by our workforce crisis. From emergency rooms to checkout counters to child care centers, workforce shortages are holding back our local economy. Our workforce is shrinking, and across our state we have reached a crisis point in nearly every sector, particularly […]

Caregiving

Vermont has an aging population and a shrinking workforce, meaning too many Vermonters are caught in a burdensome middle – caring for aging parents and young children at the same time. As Vermonters we care for each other, but that shouldn’t mean giving up a paycheck. This issue is personal to me. Years ago, while […]

Housing

All Vermonters deserve safe, affordable housing close to where they work. To eliminate the barriers that stand in the way of growing our state’s housing supply, we will need significant, structural investment. As Lieutenant Governor, I’ve seen that our housing crisis hurts every community. Nearly every business owner and employer I have met across the […]

Climate

Here in Vermont, our recreation and agriculture industries are squarely in the bullseye of climate change. In my own life, I have seen profound changes – every winter we have fewer big snow events and instead, more rainy days and freezing nights. Vermont is not Vermont without skiing, snowmobiling and maple syrup. I know that […]

Foreign Policy

Vermont has long been a moral north star in American foreign policy. Leaders such as Sen. George Aiken and Sen. Patrick Leahy have shown us that our nation is at its best when we follow our highest values – not our worst instincts.  As an international human rights lawyer by training, I will draw on […]

Voting Rights

Across the country, we continue to witness false election claims, attacks on non-partisan election officials, and an effort to roll back the tools necessary to ensure equal access to the ballot box by Trump-backed Republicans. Here in Vermont, we boast some of the most accessible and transparent elections in the country. As your Congresswoman, I’ll […]

Reproductive Rights

Vermont has always been a leader in the fight to ensure affordable, accessible reproductive health care for all. But today, with Roe v. Wade, no longer the law of the land, the right to reproductive liberty is under threat in communities across our country. That’s why as Lieutenant Governor I was proud to support Proposal […]

_______________health care

Healthcare

There is no doubt that our healthcare system is flawed. We spend far more money on healthcare than any industrialized country in the world, and our outcomes are far worse than most. Out-of-pocket costs are way too high, and millions of Americans have no healthcare coverage at all. I will be a champion for universal […]

Social Security

Our Social Security system provides a right for every American to age with dignity, and Social Security Disability Insurance provides a crucial safety net for the 43,895 working-age Vermonters with disabilities. As the daughter of a mother with multiple sclerosis, SSI and SSDI are personal to me. Rising inflation has stretched the pocketbooks of older […]

Broadband

In my hometown of Newbury, one in three kids do not have access to the internet. Statewide, more than 50,000 homes and businesses do not have access to broadband. Spotty and unreliable internet and cellular service continue to hold back Vermonters. Inequities in access to the internet mean too many Vermonters are confronted with massive […]

LGBTQ+ Rights

Vermonters should be able to live their lives with dignity, free from fear and discrimination. However, in state legislatures across the country, fundamental rights are under attack. From Florida’s Don’t Say Gay Bill to Alabama’s ban on gender-affirming care, a wave of explicitly anti-LGBTQ legislation has swept across the country in recent years. Conservative attacks […]

Agriculture

I grew up on my family’s vegetable and dairy farm in South Newbury, Vermont; I understand firsthand that family farms are essential to our rural communities. They are an economic driver, where communities gather, and provide food and security to our friends and neighbors. In the wake of the pandemic and with war waging in […]

Racial Justice

We all know that there are laws on the books that create systemic barriers to the full participation of black and brown Americans and Vermonters in community life and in government institutions. We see these systemic barriers in accessing health care, housing, land, education, economic opportunity, government participation and much more. Not only do we […]

Gun Safety

From schools to supermarkets to places of worship, the risk of gun violence is a constant, simmering threat in our communities. From Uvalde, Texas to Buffalo, New York, we have seen high-powered weapons in the wrong hands inflict needless suffering on innocent Americans. It doesn’t have to be this way. We must act to pass […]
