Sally Fox for Senate

Who am I?

A Chittenden County resident since 1976, I have spent her career in public service as a policy advocate and a lawyer. My experience combines an understanding of a broad range of public policy issues with the fiscal realities facing Vermont.

I began mycareer with Vermont Legal Aid as an attorney for people with disabilities and an advocate for disability rights at the Vermont legislature. I elected to the Vermont House in 1986, where I served seven terms and held many leadership roles. After leaving the legislature in 2000, she worked as an advocate for small business, higher education and public safety.

I was elected to the Senate in 2010.

I am married and have two grown sons.

Why am I running?

I am running for re-election to the Vermont Senate in order to continue the work on the issues that are important to me and also to the citizens who I represent.
I have served on the two Senate committee with the jurisdiction over health care and financing and insurance and have played a critical role on the path to single payer health care. This work is far from over, and I want to be in the Senate to ensure that all Vermonters have access to affordable care. The federal ACA is an important factor in our legislation, but also has the potential to leave gaps in coverage and affordability. I want to be able to shape our policies to avoid any potential loss in access as we transition to the Exchange.
I also have spent my career as an advocate for children, families, seniors,and people with disablities. I have also fought hard for a sensible juvenile justice system, and restorative justice programs.
The Vermont Senate is a small group of people whose collective expertise make state policy. My experience and knowledge are an important element in that mix.

My Goals

This is not my first year in office. However, my top two goals are:
affordable,accessible health care and
state budget that provides services to vulnerable Vermonters

My DFA Values

This legacy campaign is missing this information

My Campaign is People Powered!

I have been endorsed by the Vermont NEA, AFT, Nurses, Planned Parenthood, and Vermont State Employees.
I have volunteers and friends who are helping me by placing signs, writing letters, and waving on street corners. I have a very low key campaign, because I have had some health issues, which limit my ability.

About the Endorsement Process

The driving force behind all DFA endorsements is our members. We recognize that all politics is local and that what is considered progressive in Los Angeles may be very different from what's considered progressive in Louisville. For this reason, DFA does not have a litmus test of specific progressive positions for which a candidate must stand. Our endorsement is heavily weighted based on these questions:

• Will the candidate move the progressive movement forward in their community?
• Does the candidate have substantial support from our local members?
• Do the candidate's positions and policies fit into the broader progressive movement?
• Is the campaign people-powered and the candidate working to win?

If you have questions, or want to let us know about a candidate in your neighborhood, please call us at (802) 651-3200 or email us at [email protected] .
