In 2016, David became the first Progressive elected to the office of Lieutenant Governor. Previously, David served Chittenden County in the Vermont State Senate. He was first elected as a State Representative from Burlington where he served 14 years. David lives in Hinesburg and co-owns Full Moon Farm, an organic farm, with his spouse, Rachel Nevitt. David has been a leader on many issues that will likely come before the Senate in the coming years. On sustainable agricultural issues, healthcare reform, labor relations, end-of-life-choice, marijuana policy, labeling of GMO foods and progressive taxation, David has continued to be an outspoken leader.
Doug was elected Auditor of Accounts in 2012, the first Progressive elected to statewide office. Doug has several decades of economic development and policy analysis experience, including several years working in the Auditor’s office in the 90s. Since that time, he has provided policy guidance for Legislators dealing with economic development and related tax policies, the livable wage, and the benefits of greater in-state purchasing.
Having Doug as Auditor means Vermonters now have a real Progressive leader watching over how and where our precious tax dollars are spent and making sure our money is working for us, not just for the big banks and the wealthy.
