Serving in the Vermont House of Representatives this past biennium has been a privilege and honor for me as your representative from the Addison, Ferrisburgh, Panton, Vergennes and Waltham district.
I have taken this responsibility seriously as a member of House General, Housing and Military Affairs Committee and often expressed the views of local, small businesses against increased state regulations and mandates. Many of my floor votes have been to control excessive government spending and taxes. Especially important to me are the district residents I have met, answered questions for, or coordinated visits to public hearings in Montpelier to provide well-informed testimony to other committees of the Legislature. Based on the concerns of district residents, in January I introduced a bill on traumatic brain injury treatment after criminal actions, that Gov. Shumlin signed into law last week.
I look forward to continue to serve and plan to run for the seat this November. My goals include: public safety despite increased opiate abuse, economic prosperity through education and a competitive business environment, affordability including leveling of property tax increases, fiscal restraint in state spending and taxation in line with personal income gains.
During the campaign season I hope to meet many other residents in order to listen to your concerns and answer questions. At any time you may contact me via email at [email protected] or phone at 877-2169.
Rep. Warren Van Wyck
