Tom Burditt is unique. He has the worst voting record in the Vermont House of Representatives.
Burditt has consistently voted against the best interests of Vermont and Vermonters. This year he voted against bills that had overwhelming support in the House and Senate.
For example, Burditt voted no on legislation that requires our public schools to use safe non-toxic cleaning products. He was the sole vote against a bill requiring health insurers to disclose information about denied claims and the amount of money spent for lobbying, advertising and executive compensation.
He even voted against a bill that would have added 77.5 megawatts of community-scale clean energy to our future electric power capacity.
Burditt’s negative votes against a better Vermont disqualify his re-election in November. He needs to be sent home.
