VT Candidates Take No Fossil Fuel Money Pledge

Now more than ever, Vermonters need elected officials who are willing to take bold action towards reducing our dependence on dirty energy and fossil fuels. Despite broad consensus that we must transition away from dirty fossil fuels, Vermont’s greenhouse gas emissions continue to rise. From reduced snowfall, to extreme weather events and increased energy costs, Vermonters are already feeling the effects of climate change.

Dirty fossil fuel money is corrupting our political system and blocking bold action on climate change. Fossil fuel companies spent more than $260 million in campaign contributions during the 2016 election cycle. Vermont is certainly not immune from the corrupting effects of fossil fuel money.

That is why in 2018, VPIRG is asking all candidates for elected office in Vermont to sign the No Fossil Fuel Money Pledge.

The pledge states:

I pledge to not take contributions from the oil, gas, and coal industry and instead prioritize the health of our families, climate, and democracy over fossil fuel industry profits.

VPIRG is taking on this effort in coordination with the national No Fossil Fuel Money coalition.

Take a look at which Vermont candidates have signed below – the list is searchable and sortable by name, office sought and district.

Not sure what district you live in? Visit the secretary of state’s voter page to find out: https://mvp.sec.state.vt.us/

Don’t see a candidate listed here? That doesn’t necessarily mean they’ve refused to take the pledge – it’s possible they just haven’t signed yet. Contact them and ask them to visit vpirg.org/NoFossilFuelMoney to take the pledge.
