I have worked hard for you in Montpelier for the past 12 years. My record of support for access to health care, working families and children, a healthy environment and working landscape, workers' rights, social equity for BIPOC and LGBTQ Vermonters, safe communities, and renewable energy resources is among the strongest in the Vermont Legislature.

I will be voting for Mike Yantachka to continue as our state representative because he has consistently worked for the public interest, a healthy environment, and a sustainable local economy. He has kept us informed of upcoming legislative issues and has worked well with other community leaders.” – Louis Cox

“I'm voting for Mike because he has done such a great job representing Charlotte since he first became Charlotte's representative. He has been a champion of clean water, reducing the use of fossil fuels, and a supporter of healthy lives for all Vermonters. He is honest, hard-working, and does a great job keeping Charlotters informed of what is happening in the legislature.”

– Ruah Swennerfelt

“Mike has been our representative for much of the time I have lived in Charlotte. I am not a single issue voter, yet I agree with those who felt he made a big mistake with the abortion issue and I respect the fact that he changed his thinking on the topic when presented with a multitude of facts and opinions from his constituents. … I feel Mike is the strongest and most knowledgeable candidate and deserving of our vote again this August and in November.”      

  -- Frances Foster
