Robert Millar, executive director of the Vermont Progressive Party, has formally announced he is running under the party’s banner for a seat in the Vermont House representing Winooski and part of Burlington.
Millar, who worked as U.S. Sen. Bernie Sanders’ office manager during Sanders’ 2012 re-election campaign, will step down from his role with the Progressive Party to focus on his campaign and will work as a consultant.
Millar is running for the seat held by Democrat George Cross, who declined to seek reelection. Republicans and Democrats have not announced a candidate for the seat.
