ENDORSEMENTS

Former Governor Madeleine Kunin

“Kitty has demonstrated that she is a fair and careful holder of Vermont’s purse strings. She understands the need for Vermonters to work together, regardless of party, to get things done, and her knowledge of education issues is firsthand. She was a public school teacher in the Northeast Kingdom for 14 years. Kitty will step into the Lieutenant Governor’s Office on day one and deliver for Vermonters. I am thrilled to endorse her candidacy.”

Former Governor Howard Dean

“With her Vermont values and history of working with people to get things done, Kitty is uniquely qualified for the job of Lieutenant Governor. If needed, I know she could step into the role of Governor. I’m proud to endorse her candidacy.”

Michele Asch, Twincraft Skincare, Burlington Resident

"As a business person and someone who is deeply committed to Vermont, I am impressed by Kitty's experience and success as chair of the Appropriations Committee.  She knows Vermont and has an in-depth understanding of our state's greatest needs and what it will take to address workforce shortages, attract young people to our state, and ensure that Vermonters have access to affordable, high quality childcare. As Lieutenant Governor, I know she will be a strong voice for Vermont's families, communities, and businesses."

Rep. Hal Colston, Chittenden-6-7

"Kitty Toll epitomizes the notion of care, the way John McKnight defines it: as the consenting commitment of citizens to one another. I experienced this as a legislator when Rep. Toll chaired the House Appropriations Committee. I support Kitty Toll for Lieutenant Governor, so all Vermonters will have a voice."

Vermont State Treasurer, Beth Pearce

“Throughout her life, Kitty Toll has delivered for Vermonters. From her time as a middle school teacher, a State Representative, and Chair of the House Appropriations Committee, Kitty has dedicated her life to helping Vermonters. This record of public service, combined with her ability to work with others, make her uniquely qualified to lead during these challenging times. Kitty has what it takes to be our next Lieutenant Governor.”

Neal Goswami  Former Chief of Vermont Press Bureau, Former WCAX Reporter, Northfield

"Kitty Toll is a proven and effective leader and was an outstanding steward of Vermont’s resources as chair of the House Appropriations Committee. Kitty is the right person to lead Vermont forward during these unsettling times, and I’m proud to support her for lieutenant governor.​​
