As a high school student at Milton High School, who will be a resident of this lovely state for a long time I believe that Emily Hecker is the right choice for Vermont State Representative. We have a world of problems and unfortunately, we can’t just fix all of them at once, but we can however start small, start with Vermont, and be the best Vermont we can be, and Emily Hecker wants to help us do that.

Emily Hecker has decided to run for State Representative because she truly believes she can Vermont a better place. Emily’s economic priorities are to, provide workers a livable wage, make sure that healthcare is guaranteed to everyone, and make sure there is affordable housing for all. Her environmental priorities are to create lots of well-paying jobs, ensure that Vermont keeps on track to 100% renewable energy, improve the recycling and composting systems with a final goal of becoming a zero-waste state. She is also a very large advocate for educational improvement. Her priorities for improving education in the state of Vermont are, to improve the funding systems so that every student receives a high quilty education no matter where they live and what their parent’s income is, she also wants and to make higher education more affordable so that no one has to start there working live with loads and loads of student-loan debt.

Emily Hecker does not only serve on the Milton and Winooski school board, but she has also worked for local substance abuse prevention while being a great mother of three. She truly does care about the improvement of Vermont as a whole and hopefully, one day can advocate for more than our small but great state.
