Issues

Campaign themes

2014

Krowinski's website highlights the following campaign themes:[2]

  • Earned Sick Days
Excerpt: "This bill would give workers the opportunity to earn one hour of paid sick time for every 30 hours worked. “No person should have to choose between being a responsible worker and a responsible family member. No mother should have to choose between her job and taking care of a sick child."
  • Toxic-Free Families
Excerpt: "More than 1 in 5 personal care products contain chemicals linked to cancer. Instead of banning bad chemicals one by one, it’s time to create a comprehensive and transparent system to identify and regulate the worst chemicals."
  • Tobacco Restrictions
Excerpt: "We passed a bill in the House that would restrict smoking tobacco outside state owned buildings, child care facilities and motels.  It also prohibits smoking in a car when a child is in the back seat."
  • Women’s Rights and Choice
Excerpt: "I’ve fought for women’s rights my entire career.  I am the Director of Vermont Public Affairs for Planned Parenthood Northern New England and serve on the Advisory Board for Vermont Access to Reproductive Freedom.  As your State Representative, I’ll  continue to fight for access to reproductive health care, safe places for battered women and victims of domestic violence, and equal pay for equal work."
  • Healthcare for All
Excerpt: "The growing cost and lack of accessibility to healthcare is a problem. As a patient and supporter of our community health center I know first-hand the critical role it plays in our community.  I support single payer health care."
  • Education
Excerpt: "Ensuring students have access to quality education is critical to our community’s future. I want our high school students to have all the tools and opportunities they need to be successful–whether at college, tech school, or in a good job."
  • Local Food & Urban Agriculture
Excerpt: "Local food is good for you and good for our economy.  Local food is a nutritious alternative to factory farming, and provides an economic benefit to our community.  Burlington is so fortunate to have the Intervale and a number of community gardens.  Buying local food helps support local jobs and reduces our carbon footprint.  As your legislator, I’ll support our local food economy."
  • Safe & Affordable Housing
Excerpt: "I’ve lived all over our district – renting on Park Street, Maple Street, Peru Street, and Hyde Street. I now own my home on Spring Street, so I know firsthand how hard it is to find an affordable place to live in Burlington.  No one should have to agonize about where they’re going to live, and I’ll work hard to make sure all of our neighbors have access to safe and affordable housing."
  • Voter Rights
Excerpt: "I believe voting is fundamental to our democracy, that’s why I started a nonprofit devoted to registering and getting young people to vote.  We need to expand access to voting and oppose Republican proposals to restrict voting rights.  These restrictions often target poor or minority voters unfairly. In order to ensure every Vermonter’s right to vote, I’ll push for…Same Day Voter Registration…Online registration”
  • Corporations Are Not People
Excerpt: "Corporations are not people.  It’s that simple.  Our power, as average citizens, to influence elections should not be undermined by the collective power of big corporations.  Corporations should not be afforded the same First Amendment rights as people…Hardworking families are the heart of our community. I will be their voice in Montpelier."[2]

Scorecards

See also: State legislative scorecards and State legislative scorecards in Vermont

Legislative scorecards are used to evaluate elected public officials based on voting record. Some scorecards are created by political advocacy groups with a focus on specific issues, while others are developed by newspapers and are broad in scope. Scorecards are meant to be used as a tool for voters to have a quick picture of whether their views align with a particular legislator's record.

Because scorecards can be specific to particular issues or general to a state’s legislative term, for example, each report should be considered on its own merits. Each entity that publishes these reports uses different methodologies and definitions for the terms used.

An overview for scorecards in all 50 states can be found on this page. To contribute to the list of Vermont scorecards, email suggestions to scorecards@ballotpedia.org.

Please see our writing guidelines if you would like to add results from an individual scorecard to this legislator's profile.
