Priorities

Well-being of our Neighbors and Communities

As a former Select Board member for Waitsfield,  I worked hard with other Select Board members to keep taxes in check, so that our neighbors can afford to live and prosper here. As a state legislator, I am committed to policies to support our rural communities, focusing on housing,  broadband, childcare and other needs of working families. I support strategies to encourage “smart growth” principles that compliment our historic villages and enhance our pedestrian and bike-friendly commercial districts. I will also continue to work hard to ensure that Vermonters have access to assistance they need during challenging situations.

The Environment

Vermont’s economy and its brand depend on the health and safety of the environment. Over the past 28 years, I have focused my professional career on the sound management of Vermont’s waters and improved resilience to severe weather to benefit the economic and ecological health of our communities and our quality of life. My approach will be to continue to emphasize and foster strong partnerships with municipalities, businesses, local organizations and you to ensure a healthy environment for people of all ages and future generations to enjoy.

Rural Economy

I know how important it is for small, rural towns to achieve and sustain a sound economy. I will continue to promote housing. I will work hard for our family farms and forestlands which are integral to our heritage and economy. I will continue to support our four-season, outdoor recreation and tourism-based economy. I am an advocate for workforce development and our post-secondary education system, especially our State College System, so that businesses get the skilled employees they need. I will continue to seek policies that will attract new business to our rural communities, such as in the fields of local foods, the arts and the “creative economy” and health and wellness.

 

Kari is committed to community, economy, working families & the environment.
