WORCESTER, VT – Longtime local resident Cheri Goldstein filed signatures by supporters yesterday in her bid for a seat in the Vermont House of Representatives. Goldstein has worked in public service for nearly three decades including serving on the Worcester Selectboard and on the boards of several community organizations. Goldstein and her partner have adopted and raised eleven children in the Worcester community.

Goldstein states that her candidacy is inspired both by her lifelong commitment to community engagement and by the grassroots movement for progressive change that has developed in Vermont over the past several months of Senator Bernie Sanders’ presidential campaign: “I believe it is time for the priorities of our state to better reflect the values of our communities. I have been inspired by Senator Bernie Sanders, and feel there is a disconnect here in Vermont between Senator Sanders’ overwhelmingly popular, bold agenda for change and what folks in the State House spend their time on.”

Goldstein’s platform is is focused on creating and maintaining healthy, equitable, and sustainable Vermont communities. She hopes to engage her constituents, grassroots activists throughout the state, and elected officials to build an economy founded on liveable wages, fair tax policies, and a strong infrastructure and social service system, which is a source of good jobs and further economic recovery for all Vermonters.

Michelle Salvador, her campaign manager states: “Cheri is a tremendous resource in this community, She has dedicated her life to social justice and public service, and she listens to and values the voices of everyday Vermonters. She understands the needs of people in this community and will represent our voices without hesitation.”

Goldstein will be running in Lamoille-Washington 1 District, which includes the Towns of Elmore and Morristown in Lamoille County and Woodbury and Worcester in Washington County. Vermont Speaker of the House Shap Smith who currently fills one of the two seats in the district has announced he will not be running for re-election.
