Progressive Party Urges Members to Support Bernie Sanders

Sept. 21, 2015

  

RUTLAND— The State Committee of the Vermont Progressive Party passed a resolution on Saturday in support of Bernie Sanders for president, and encouraged members to do what they can to support the senator’s candidacy.

Morgan Daybell, the Vice Chair of the Party, said that the passage of Saturday’s resolution should come as no surprise to those familiar with what the Progressive Party stands for: “The issues Bernie champions— like economic justice and getting corporate money out of politics— are the same tenets on which the Progressive Party was founded.”

The resolution (full text available here) also cited Senator Sanders’ positions on such issues as single-payer healthcare, paid family and sick leave, climate change, and institutional racism as reasons for the Party’s support.
