The following comes from Sims' website:
Healthcare: We can secure accessible and affordable healthcare for all Vermonters and ensure that we spend our dollars on high-level medical care, not paperwork, bureaucracy, and profit.Lowell Wind Project: I am a strong supporter of the NVDA 3-year moratorium on wind development. It is clear how divisive the Lowell project has been to our community and we need to study the impacts of the project before any other projects are proposed for the Northeast Kingdom. We must hold Green Mountain Power to its promises to the people of the Northeast Kingdom regarding the Lowell project. We need to invest in alternative energy projects that reduce our dependency on fossil fuels, are appropriately sized for Vermont, do not negatively impact the environment, and directly benefit local communities.
Property Taxes. Property taxes are skyrocketing, placing an unfair burden on low and middle-income Vermonters. The current system does not work. It is time to tie education funding directly to income.
Education: The State should support the work of school boards and community decisions regarding their local schools. Montpelier should not impose one-size-fits-all directives on our communities.
Rural Economic Development: The state can invest in job creation here among our farmers, loggers, and entrepreneurs. Local businesses are the heart of our community and when we grow and sustain our local businesses, we build strong communities.
