Dear Legislator,

Vermont has an ethics problem.

Vermont is one of just three states without an independent ethics commission, without financial disclosure requirements for public officials, and without a revolving door policy.

The vast majority of our elected state and local officials are trustworthy, dedicated and passionate individuals who want to do the right thing. But we recognize the need to set common ethical standards.

The days of pretending Vermont is immune to impropriety are over. We implore you to act by taking up this issue in earnest. Please publicly express your commitment to enacting comprehensive ethics reforms in the 2016 legislative session.
