Vermont Republicans Launch Statewide Campaign Highlighting Cronyism On H.R. 8
Party leaders call on all Republicans to share this flyer at their town meeting and with local officials.

 

Berlin, VT -- Today, the Vermont Republican Party published 77 flyers online, one for each Vermont House member who voted for or supported House Resolution 8; an effort to undermine our electoral process and remove a duly elected Republican Representative.

“What Mitzi Johnson, Jill Krowinski, and their band of far-left Progressive Party members did on H.R. 8 was not only cronyism, it takes direct aim against our electoral process. They will be held accountable not only by Vermont Republicans, but by their constituents as well.” said Jeff Bartley, Executive Director of the Vermont Republican Party.

He continued: “We are asking all Republicans across the state to print out the flyer of their respective legislator and to bring it to their town meeting with them. Additionally, the Party will be sending a copy of the flyer to local Selectboard, School Board, and Board of Civil Authority members.”

“This should put all 77 House members on notice. We are paying attention. Vermonters are paying attention. Thus far, this has been one of the weakest and most unresponsive starts to a biennium in recent memory. It’s time Montpelier shifts focus to the crisis of affordability and work to alleviate the tax burden on Vermonters,” concluded Jeff Bartley.

A copy of all the flyers can be viewed and downloaded here.  Vermonters are encouraged to print the flyers out and distribute them at their town meeting and/or polling locations. Additionally, we ask Vermonters to share the flyers online via their social networks.
