Hannah is proud of her roots in Ward 8. She is the daughter of a single mother who works as a healthcare worker, and her father was a construction worker. The lived experiences of her family have served as the foundation for her commitment to push actionable progressive policy forward. Hannah truly understands the struggles so many Ward 8 neighbors face because she lives them herself.
Hannah is running on a platform that advocates for compassionate public safety that works for all Burlingtonians, a housing-first approach that pushes for rent stabilization, the creation of guaranteed minimum income, and centering climate and racial justice in each and every conversation.
Hannah believes that solving deep challenges will require working together and listening to each other. She has worked tirelessly on behalf of the Ward 8 neighborhood serving as a Steering Committee Member on the Ward 1 and Ward 8 Neighborhood Planning Association, and as the Ward 8 Representative on the Community Development Block Grant Advisory Board.
Over the last year, Hannah has served as the Finance Director on Congresswoman Becca Balint’s historic campaign. Working with Representative Balint was an experience that taught her so much about leading with values and showing up even when times get hard.
Hannah is running for city council to be a representative leader that listens, is responsive, has a thoughtful approach to solving complex problems, and, frankly, puts real progress before politics.
