I’m State Rep. Dylan Giambatista, and I am a candidate for State Senate in 2020. I am running to bring the voices of our neighbors to the State House so we solve problems and make progress together. I look forward to running an energetic campaign through all the communities that make up the Chittenden district.”
My commitment to public service comes from a deeply held belief that Vermont’s best days are ahead.
I am a lifelong Vermonter who faced struggles as a youth, dropped out of high school, and discovered my passions as a young adult at the Community College of Vermont. These experiences, and an appreciation for the institutions that helped me along the way, inspired me to run for office to help Vermonters.
In 2016, I was elected by voters in Essex Junction’s 8-2 district to serve in the Vermont House of Representatives. I was re-elected in 2018 and am in the midst of my second term. Prior to serving in elected office, I was a policy adviser to the State Treasurer, and worked in the legislative branch as Chief of Staff to the Speaker of the Vermont House.
I am passionate about community service and giving back to Vermont. During the legislative session, I serve on the House Education Committee. I also serve year-round as a Trustee of the Vermont State Colleges Board of Trustees. I am a Justice of the Peace and serve on the Essex Board of Civil Authority.
It’s time for a new generation of leaders to step forward and solve problems. I am running for State Senate to bring my lived experience, and the skills I have developed inside government, to lead Vermont into the 21st century. Today, too many feel disconnected and left behind. The status quo and partisanship have zapped us of our focus.
We have to do better. That’s why, as a State Rep, I have partnered with legislative colleagues to bring government to our neighbors through regular updates, community meetings, and forums. It is my belief that public officials must go the extra mile to be available and accountable leaders. This is the goal of my 2020 candidacy for State Senate — doing more for our communities and ensuring a strong Vermont future. I look forward to meeting with community members as the campaign gets underway.
