Peter has been a champion of working Vermonters throughout his distinguished career. Since his election to Congress in 2006, he has been widely recognized as a skillful legislator who chooses governing over gridlock. Peter’s accomplishments in Congress reflect his strong commitment to bringing people together to find common ground on the challenges facing our nation. In an era of partisanship, he has worked across the aisle to create jobs, invest in energy efficiency, increase access to affordable education and health care, protect our national security and civil liberties, and care for our veterans. As a member of the Committee on Oversight and Government Reform, Peter works every day to make sure that Americans get a square deal in return for their trust in their representatives. He knows that we must reform our campaign finance system so that our government can be as attentive to everyday Americans as it is to billionaire mega-donors.
