Campaign themes


Trieber's website highlighted the following campaign themes:[2]

  • Business Development
Excerpt: "Business Development is key to the growth and future of the district, I have first-hand experience with the concerns of the small business owner. As a member of the Rockingham Selectboard, I have seen the issues that our selectboards face in trying to maintain our local businesses while incentivizing new ventures. The state needs to be a partner in this process."
  • Healthcare
Excerpt: "Single Payer Healthcare is not just a compassionate law that will help thousands of Vermonters avoid desperate financial situations due to rising health care costs, but it will also help the state on an economic level as we look for ways to attract businesses to our area. Being in proximity to New Hampshire, Vermont must look for ways to stand out from our neighbor."
  • State Budgets
Excerpt: "The Vermont state government has a fiduciary duty to live within its budget, just as its citizens do. While in the state house, I worked to pass responsible budgets created without broad-based tax increases. Serving on the house committee on human services, I fought to meet the needs of Vermont’s most vulnerable while eliminating waste."
  • Privacy Rights of Vermonters
Excerpt: "Vermonters cherish their right to privacy, and both our Federal and State constitutions contain provisions that guarantee the right to privacy for our citizens. But the right to privacy is always in need of a staunch defender, as this past session has proven."
  • Your issues
Excerpt: "The issues that are of the most importance to me are the ones that are brought to me by my constituents. I have enjoyed meeting many of you, hearing your concerns, and bringing them back to Montpelier to fight for you. I look forward to the opportunity to continue to work for you in Montpelier."
