David Zuckerman

“David Zuckerman is the most progressive lieutenant Governor in the country.”

~ Bernie Sanders

Vermont Lt. Governor, David Zuckerman, was inspired to get involved in politics when volunteering for Bernie Sanders’ 1992 Congressional re-election campaign. In 1996, after graduating from the University of Vermont with a degree in Environmental Studies, he was elected as a Progressive to the Vermont House of Representatives. He served as a Representative for 14 years, including 4 years as the Chair of the Agriculture Committee. In 2012, David was elected Vermont State Senator from Chittenden County where he served for 4 years on the Education and Agriculture committees. David has been an outspoken supporter and lead organizer inside and outside the Vermont Statehouse on issues such as Marriage Equality, Campaign Finance Reform, Death with Dignity, Cannabis Reform, GMO Labeling, Workers Rights, LGBTQ Rights, Environmental Protection and Clean Energy, Rural Economic Development, and more. In 2016 he was elected Lt. Governor of Vermont as a Progressive/Democrat. He is the co-owner of Full Moon Farm, a NOFA certified organic vegetable farm in Hinesburg, Vermont, where he resides with his wife and daughter.
