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 InBALTIMORE — Chants of “no justice, no peace, no racist police” echoed through the streets of...
