I am Troy Headrick, running for the Vermont House, Chittenden 15.
I believe our workforce, our community, and our local economy are strengthened when we pay all workers a livable wage.
I am a proud member of the recently formed UVM Staff United and believe that union membership strengthens our collective pride in our institutions.
I believe in the value of teaching our children with an honest reckoning for the systemic racism and white supremacy upon which this nation was built. I believe our educators are the experts in how our children learn best and that we have an obligation to protect our teachers as they engage with that expertise.
I believe that abortion is healthcare and that a woman’s right to make her own decisions about her body are fundamental and undeniable.
I believe that we reside on colonized land and that we have an obligation to repair the resulting harm that continues for the original inhabitants.
