No Fossil Fuel Money Pledge Takers – 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. Take a look at which Vermont candidates have signed – the list is searchable and sortable by name, office sought and district.
