First of all, thank you for the support you’ve given me over the years.
As you are well aware, these are unprecedented times. Over the last six months, I have been solely focused on leading Vermont through this once-in-a-century challenge and doing the job you hired me to do. I’ve tracked the data closely, listened to the experts and followed the science. Every decision I’ve made has been in the best interest of our health, safety and economic future.
I’m so proud of how Vermonters have stepped up to support our neighbors and communities — and as a result, our state has been an example for others across the nation.
As we rebuild and recover, my priorities will continue to be: Growing the economy, making Vermont more affordable and protecting the most vulnerable. These principles have served us well over the last four years and we cannot afford to change course now.
I want to be upfront with you, while leading the state out of this crisis, campaigning will not be my highest priority. But unfortunately, we’re just a few weeks away from voting, and the stakes could not be higher. So, I’m asking for your support to ensure we keep moving in the right direction, as we confront COVID-19 and rebuild a stronger Vermont in its aftermath.
If you care about Vermont as much as I do, and I know you do, it’s critical we have the resources needed to win in November. I’d be grateful for any amount you could spare.
I pledge to do my very best to provide you a steady hand on the wheel as we navigate this crisis, and work tirelessly to make sure we emerge stronger as a state.
Thank you again for your consideration, and your faith and trust in me.
