Lenes endorses Sirotkin

Prior to entering the Senate, our lawmakers already knew and respected Michael Sirotkin as a highly effective, trusted advocate for Vermont consumers and working families. He has taken on some of the most powerful interest groups–tobacco, insurance and drug makers–and scored impressive victories against them.

I have known Michael for more than a decade and am so proud to have strongly encouraged Michael to seek the Senate seat of his amazing late wife Senator Sally Fox. It is a pleasure now to see Michael put his decades of statehouse experience to work for Chittenden County and how effective he has proven to be. In this past session alone, he successfully championed combating opioid abuse, expanding farm to school, improving ratepayer representation in utility matters, and creating significant new financing options for downtown Burlington redevelopment.

Of equal importance, Michael is responsive to and seeks input from his constituents, something all elected officials should do.
Michael clearly stands out in a crowded field. Please join me in giving one of your six votes to re-elect Senator Michael Sirotkin.

Rep. Joan Lenes
Shelburne, St George
