Issues

Campaign themes

2012

The following comes from Bergman's campaign website:[1]

  • We need a state legislator who will focus on policies that support the residents of the Old North End and Downtown Burlington.
  • We need state tax, spending, and investment policies that favor the vast majority of the people and help address the disparity of wealth between the rich and everybody else.
  • We need a budget that puts people first and asks the rich to pay their fair share.
  • We need a single-payer health care system that recognizes that health care is a human right.
  • We need to protect women’s rights and needs, including reproductive freedoms.
  • We need a state agricultural policy that strongly supports urban agriculture.
  • We need a greater state commitment to address the unique problems related to drugs, mental illness, and crime in urban areas, including Burlington’s downtown.
  • We need environmental and energy policies that continue to make progress and work in partnership with Vermont’s cities and towns.'
  • We need to fight institutional racism and discrimination and support the needs of immigrants and migrant workers, like those who milk our cows and pick our fruits and vegetables.
