To the editor: Vermonters lucky to have pro-environment candidates

Letters to the editor logo 3Like me, you might be feeling dismayed by the current presidential election cycle. Yet, while tabloid-style politics grabs the national media attention, back at home we are lucky to have local candidates for the Vermont legislature who we can be proud of.

Recently, Vermont Conservation Voters released its endorsement of local candidates: Reps. David Deen, Mike Mrowicki, Valerie Stewart, Mollie Burke and Tristan Toleno; and Sens. Jeanette White and Becca Balint.

We are lucky to have such a stellar slate of candidates to vote for. Each of these candidates has prioritized cleaning up our state’s waters, keeping our kids safe from toxic chemicals, and keeping us moving toward a clean, renewable energy economy.

Despite the tenor of our national politics, we can look closer to home for genuine leadership. I urge everyone to get out and vote for these pro-environment candidates this election season – our children’s future depends on it.
