Priorities

Health and Well-being of our Neighbors and Communities

As a former Select Board member for the town of Waitsfield, I have learned firsthand how difficult it is for small, rural towns to achieve and sustain economic vitality. I worked hard with other Select Board members to keep taxes in check, so that our neighbors can afford to live and prosper here. I am also committed to livability, which I see as supporting livable wages, expanding housing, the encouraging the kind of growth that compliments our historic villages and enhances our pedestrian and bike-friendly commercial districts.

The Environment

Vermont’s economy and its brand are dependent upon 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 to benefit the economic and ecological health of our communities. My approach will be to continue to emphasize and foster strong partnerships with municipalities, businesses and you to ensure a safe and healthy environment for people of all ages and future generations to enjoy.

 

Rural Economy

Our family farms and forestlands are an integral part of our heritage and economy, and a major priority of mine is to help these businesses continue to be economically viable. Also important objective is to support our four-season, outdoor recreation and tourism-based economy and other new business and entrepreneurial ventures, such as in the area of health and wellness. By working together, we can develop and embrace new strategies that put us on a path towards a strong and vibrant economic future.

Kari loves her community, the woods and the water.
