Off and Running, Thanks to Emerge Vermont Bootcamp!

I attended Emerge Vermont Candidate Bootcamp this past May, and WOW! The action-packed, three-day training helped me to jumpstart my campaign.  Thanks, Emerge Vermont!  This organization supports women Democrats interested in running for municipal, district, or  statewide office.  The organization came about to address concerns that women make up less than 25% of all elected officials nationwide.  The Emerge network now has affiliate organizations in 20 states! Governor Madeleine Kunin is the founder of the Vermont affiliate - Emerge Vermont.

Emerge Vermont gave me the tools, know-how, and encouragement to run for Vermont State Representative. Now its off to the races -- the first race in the State Primary on August 14th; the    Big 'Un is Tuesday, November 6th.  Don't forget to vote!



Kari Receives Endorsement from the Vermont Sierra Club

I just received an endorsement of my candidacy for Vermont State Representative, Washington-7 from the Vermont Sierra Club because, as stated in their letter, of my "demonstrated commitment to protecting the environment and advancing social justice." I am honored and strengthened by this endorsement. It energizes me to continue to stand up for the values we all care about -- clean water and air, healthy forests and soils, sustainability, land stewardship, and social justice. My candidacy is about you, community, our future and our children's future. 


VT Conservation Voters Endorses Kari

Great News! I received an early endorsement from the Vermont Conservation Voters for my strong environmental credentials! This organization, as described in their press release, "aims to educate voters across the state on candidates whose values and actions demonstrate a commitment to ensuring Vermonters have access to clean air, clean water, clean energy, healthy forests, reduced exposure to toxic chemicals, and sustainable communities."  Great news!
