I am honored to announce that Chittenden County State’s Attorney Sarah George is endorsing my candidacy for State Senate. Sarah is a trailblazing leader who has elevated the call for reform in Vermont. She has been bold in her push to create a justice system that works for all of us. It’s an honor to have such a strong leader on our team.
I agree with Sarah that our criminal justice system is broken and needs immediate reform. Racial disparities undermine the fundamental fairness of the system, and too few have a second chance to get their lives on track after being incarcerated. We must ensure accountability for the police and our correctional facilities, create transparency and access to data, address the opioid crisis as a medical issue, and build a criminal justice system that is fair and equitable to all Vermonters. As a State Senator, I will pass legislation to make sure we have a criminal justice system that works for all.
There are four weeks until Primary Day on August 11th. Let’s roll up our sleeves and get to work!
