Growing up in Burlington, I found a home for my interests in art and politics in Bernie Sanders’ Mayor’s Youth Office, at a time when I was struggling to fit in. It was a special honor to receive his endorsement earlier this week.
Senator Sanders writes, “Selene Colburn is a strong supporter of working families, the environment, and LGBT rights. She has done a great job on Burlington’s City Council and I am confident will be an excellent state representative.”
It has been a privilege to represent so many of you on Burlington’s City Council, where together we’ve pushed for housing affordability, quality-of-life improvements, environmental justice, livable wages, police reform and humane solutions to the opiate crisis.
I’m ready to continue this work for you every day in Montpelier and ask for your support as your representative to the Chittenden 6-4 district in the Democratic primary NEXT TUESDAY, AUGUST 9TH.
As I’ve knocked on doors over the last several months, I’ve been continually impressed by how thoughtful, informed and passionate my neighbors are. Thanks to all of you, I’ve learned even more about how badly we need improvements to our systems for healthcare, education funding, childcare access, property taxation and more. I am grateful to you for sharing your stories and your doorsteps.
With much warmth and gratitude,
