Ryan Gyukeri, Weybridge

Ryan Shea Gyukeri is a 22-year-old senior at UVM who grew up in Addison County and got his political start working on the campaign of Sen. Sanders. If elected to the coordinating committee, he'd work to make the Progressives a populist force in the state. If we have a strong economic justice program, the Progressive party can become a larger and more independent force in state politics. We can and should have healthcare, environmental, and labor platforms that are independent of the state Democrats. He is a member of Democratic Socialists of America
