Rebecca Holcombe on Principles & Values

 

 


Served in Scott's administration; now running against him

For the first 15 months of Republican Gov. Phil Scott's administration, Rebecca Holcombe served as his secretary of education. Now she's hoping to oust him from Vermont's top job. "I'm running for governor because I think it's time to take the state in a new direction, and I have tremendous experience as an educator, as a teacher, a principal, a secretary," she said. "And I want to put it to work for every Vermonter in every corner of the state--not just the areas that are already doing well."

Holcombe, who has not previously run for public office, was appointed secretary of education by Democratic governor Peter Shumlin in September 2013 and took office in January 2014. When Scott chose to retain her in February 2017, the new GOP governor hailed her "fierce commitment to improving Vermont's education system," and she said it was "a privilege and an honor" to serve in his administration.
