As a naval officer, I learned long ago that moral consistency and integrity is required for effective leadership, and leadership by example is key to effective decision-making and results – one cannot represent two masters. Politicians must decide: public service for all the people or service on behalf of wealthy people and corporations. They can’t have it both ways. 

Politicians cannot be credible and effective supporters of universal healthcare and campaign finance reform while simultaneously taking campaign contributions from insurance and pharmaceutical companies. Special interests do not give money to politicians out of the goodness of their heart; they do it because they know the money does affect the decisions of our representatives. That’s why I have chosen to take the political risk to stand up for what I know is the only way to bring integrity back into the process – refusing to take any kind of special interest or corporate money.

In Congress, we need leaders with moral clarity, outside the influence of money, to give us a fighting chance for good decision-making on behalf of all people. Our vision for America must be one in which all citizens – regardless of income, race, gender, faith, or orientation – are empowered with the same access and influence over the political process. Then, and only then, we will be able to focus on effectively addressing our most pressing priorities.

Vermonters are very lucky to have a quality candidate, such as Dr. Dan Freilich. I don't live in VT but am supporting him nevertheless because our government overall needs good, ethical people who respect science, the unique & special planet in which we live, and other people who may be different or less fortunate or must struggle more to overcome life's many challenges.”
