Winooski, VT – Robert Millar is excited to announce his candidacy as a Progressive candidate for the Chittenden 6-7 House district, which includes the city of Winooski and part of the city of Burlington.
Robert has lived in Winooski for more than seven years. He served two years on the Winooski School Board (one as Board President), three terms as a Justice of the Peace and member of the Board of Civil Authority, and was elected to the Winooski City Council in 2015. Prior to being elected to the Council he served on the city’s Development Review Board. He has represented Winooski on the Green Mountain Transit (formerly CCTA) Board of Commissioners for the last two years.
Robert’s professional background has primarily been in public relations, office operations, and government reform. He was Office Manager for Senator Bernie Sanders’ successful 2012 reelection campaign; Executive Director of the Vermont Progressive Party from 2013-2014; and currently is Deputy Director of Operations for Senator Sanders’ 2016 Presidential Campaign.
On running, Robert had this to say:
“I’m proud to have called Winooski my home for nearly a decade and to have had the opportunity to be involved in my community in so many ways during that time. It has been amazing to be a part of the recent renaissance in Winooski. As the city continues to grow and thrive, I look forward to remaining involved and I feel one of the best ways I can do that is to run to represent our district in Montpelier.”
A kickoff event for the campaign will be held in mid-June.
