Kesha Ram Hinsdale

Vt. State Senator

"I’m so proud to be endorsing Thomas Renner for Lt. Governor. This job is about showing up and listening with heart and intention, and that’s what Thomas does best. Last year, when the July flooding hit, Thomas joined me on day one to gather clean-up supplies and devise a system to get them to hard-hit communities across the state.  No matter what, when there’s a Vermonter in need, Thomas shows up. With his historic candidacy, Thomas will be the first person of color and openly LGBTQ+ person in Vermont’s history to serve as Lieutenant Governor. As the first woman of color to serve in the Vermont State Senate, I know what that means. We need statewide leadership to reflect the diversity of perspectives and experiences our state has to offer. Thomas knows that the next generation is ready to show up and contribute and I’m so excited to support him."

Former Vt. State Treasurer 

“Thomas is a person of integrity with a demonstrated record of public service. Thomas is a hard worker and is committed to Vermonters. I’m proud to endorse Thomas for Lieutenant Governor” 

Kitty Toll 

Former Vt. State Representative 

"Having served in the legislature for 12 years and Chair of the House of the Appropriations Committee, I understand our state’s challenges and the importance of working together to solve these challenges. Vermont needs people like Thomas who can build coalitions within the statehouse and beyond. His record of service is evidence of his commitment to our state and his ability to bring people together is exactly what we need at this time in our history. Please join me in supporting Thomas Renner for Lieutenant Governor of Vermont.”

Jane Knodell

Former Progressive Burlington City Councilor

"I served 20 years on Burlington’s city council, and I have taught economics at the University of Vermont for almost 40 years, including serving as the University's Provost and Senior Vice President. I know what good leadership looks like and I know we need leadership in Montpelier that bridges the political divide between the legislature and the Governor. Thomas deeply understands the issues that face regular Vermonters and understands that they need a pragmatic and steady approach to solve them. Thomas’ life experience is what we need in Montpelier and I’m proud to endorse him for Lieutenant Governor."

Brian Campion

Vt. State Senator

" I’m thrilled to be endorsing Thomas Renner for Lieutenant Governor! 

Now more than ever, we need politicians who will bring people together and Thomas is just this kind of person. He has the experience and commitment that Vermont needs.  

Thomas will bring a dedication to the Lieutenant Governor’s office that Vermonters deserve. He is the candidate we need to build community in Montpelier."

C.D. Mattison

Community Leader

“Thomas understands the importance of representation in government and knows that unique perspectives make Vermont stronger. Thomas has demonstrated thoughtful and progressive leadership, advocating for issues that directly impact our communities, such as affordable housing, fiscal responsibility around strategic, “make life better for all Vermonters” community investments, racial equity, and LGBTQ+ rights. As a fellow black and gay Vermonter, I’m honored to be supporting him for Lt. Governor.”

EVERY Democrat on the Burlington City Council has endorsed Thomas
