I’m running for Governor to lead Vermont forward, build a stronger economy, make Vermont more affordable, and because I know I can make a difference.
01. BUILDING A STRONGER ECONOMY
We must work together to build an economy that keeps and attracts working-age families, employers, innovators and entrepreneurs. If we make Vermont more affordable, and build a more robust economy, current employers will stay, new employers will come, wages will rise, and tax revenue for government services will increase so we can invest in the future of our state.
HERE ARE MY 3 CORE PRINCIPLES:
01: Work Together, Focus on the Fundamentals & Contain Costs for Families and Businesses.
02: Ensure a Predictable Political Environment.
03: Set Clear Budget Priorities and Make Smart Investments.
02. MAKE VERMONT MORE AFFORDABLE
Many Vermonters are experiencing a crisis of affordability. We have to work together to address the factors that are driving those costs.
3 EXAMPLES OF HOW WE CAN FIX THIS PROBLEM:
Fix the exchange, eliminate the mandate, and return savings to you.
02: Education Reform
Structural reform has to happen. We need to encourage more innovation in education. We need to improve Act46.
03: The State budget
Set responsible limits, eliminate the structural deficits, and modernize the state government.
03. MAKING A DIFFERENCE
We have big challenges and big opportunities. I’m running for Governor to lead Vermont forward, build a stronger economy, and make Vermont more affordable — and because I believe I can make a difference.
It’s going to take strong, courageous leadership – the ability to listen, set priorities, build consensus, and manage projects – in order to make progress in Vermont. These are the leadership skills I bring to the table. With great respect for the obligations of the office, and tremendous optimism for our future, I ask for your vote.
