One of the reasons I really love serving in Vermont as a rep senator and now a lieutenant governor is how connected to everything people are in Vermont. I sometimes wonder about the president or senators or holders and much bigger states than Vermont where you don't have that connection with everyday folks and my goal is to make it so that people out there who don't have money, that don't have as much power and time, feel that they have a voice in the system as well. The idea that democracy is so much more than just voting. Democracy is about participation. Its about between elections, knowing who our representatives and senators are, letting them know what we think. And Vermont, on this scale, representatives and senators have no staff. As lieutenant governor I have one staff person. So we rely on the information that our constituents impart upon us, both the prospectives that they have and also the specific knowledge in whatever arena or field they are work in or have a passion for. Because sometimes you're walking down the hall in the statehouse and you'll talk to one person about cannabis reform, while someone else walks by who wants to bench an ear on minimum wage and someone else comes by and says oh by the way, I've got someone coming next week to talk about gun reform legislation, pro or con, can they set up a meeting, what do we do to make that happen? So, I really enjoy, as leutenant governor trying to get and rally more people to find and use their voice in the process.
