David Zuckerman on Energy & Oil



Put $20 million more into weatherization

An exchange during a September forum highlighted some of their differences as Zuckerman began discussing energy policy. "Often he's made proposals in budget addresses where there's great new ideas and you're right the legislature doesn't go along with them because quietly money was taken from other programs to do it. We need to invest much more in weatherization. Under my earlier plan we would be putting 20 million additional dollars per year into weatherization."

Invest in renewable energy; Vermont has lost jobs

The two also outlined their vision for the road ahead past the pandemic--to address the root of Vermont's demographic crisis. Zuckerman calls for investments in downtown development, regenerative agriculture, and broadband, to bring in and keep the next generation of Vermonters. "We also need to invest in the jobs available right now around weatherization and renewable energy," he said. "Under the governor's term as governor, we have lost 500 renewable energy and solar installation jobs."

Work toward renewable, sustainable energy as primary sources

We believe that it is important to do everything we can to listen to our youth and step up to stop climate change. We will work toward a future where Vermonters' primary energy sources are renewable and sustainable--built and maintained by hardworking Vermonters and small businesses right here in the state. We will ensure that Vermont workers and unions are involved as we keep our promises to reduce emissions and reliance on fossil fuel sources.

Encourage alternatives to single-use vehicles

We must also continue to improve fuel efficiency for personal vehicles and the state fleet and encourage alternatives to single-use vehicles (like trains, buses, bikes, carpooling) so that rural Vermonters will be able to travel more freely across the state. Improved transportation options also mean easier access for tourists who are a significant revenue generator in our state. An increase in transportation and, therefore, tourism means an increase in employment opportunities for Vermonters.
