Rep. Taylor quits for advocacy jobMarch 24,2014
MONTPELIER — Rep. Tess Taylor, a Democrat from Barre, is leaving the Legislature to become a paid advocate pushing for the implementation of a state universal health care plan.
Taylor resigned Friday, a day after being named the executive director of Vermont’s Coalition for Universal Reform, or CURE.
Taylor was in her third term in the House. For the last year and a half, she had served as the Democratic whip.
CURE has retained a top Montpelier lobbying firm and will be permitted to run what are known as issue-advocacy campaigns around election season.
House Democrats are expected to hold an election this week to fill Taylor’s leadership position.MORE IN This Just InThe state's decommissioning advisory panel should take stands on key issues. Full Story
