Siegel looks at issues with fresh, but wide-open, eyes

Brenda Siegel gets my vote for governor in the Aug. 14 Democratic primary.

Her values of hard work and hope within challenging times and circumstances combine well with her studied understanding of Vermont’s legislative process.

Her frequent presence at the Statehouse over this last biennium speaks to learning from witnessing the process up close and firsthand, as well as advocating for the issues she is called to defend.

From her detailed ideas to address the ongoing opioid epidemic to understanding the growing economic inequities even in Vermont because of the tax giveaways from the current regime in Washington, Brenda can see the whole sky, while still keeping her feet firmly grounded in the green hills.

Brenda presents a compelling case for someone with fresh eyes — but eyes wide open. She has my vote.
