Endorsements

Our neighbors and friends are supporting Bob Hooper for State Representative.

“Bob has a track record of dedication and service to us and to our community. He knows his way around government agencies in Montpelier and he has served us on committees and boards in Burlington. He is ready to serve as our state legislator from the first day that the General Assembly meets next January. I am voting for Bob because he is ready to represent us effectively.”

— Russ Ellis, former City Counselor


“What I like about Bob Hooper is that he’s spent his life helping working people stay afloat in an economy that too often works to drag them down. He’s made a difference that way. And he’s energetic and clear about what he wants to get done at the state level. Being a Representative is a tough job; the hours are long, and the odds of success are longer. But I trust Bob to accomplish what he sets out to do for the New North End. I hope he’ll be one of our voices in Montpelier for a long time to come.”

— Senator Phillip Baruth


Bob Hooper is a serious advocate for issues he believes in. He once lobbied me for almost 40 minutes in a large freezer at my Colchester store, trying to get my support on a legislative issue I was lukewarm about. Eventually, I was convinced and voted in favor. Bob doesn’t give up easily-I like that in a legislator!”

— Senator Dick Mazza


“Bob is a tireless champion for children and working Vermonters. He understands the pressures working families face and will make sure our voices are heard in Montpelier.”

— Mark Larson, former NNE Representative


”For more than a decade, Bob Hooper fought tooth and nail to support working families as the president of our union. That’s the kind of leadership that we need more of in Montpelier right now. The people of the New North End couldn’t ask for a better advocate.”

— Dave Bellini, Current VSEA President


“Bob Hooper will bring a positive and pragmatic approach to Montpelier”
— Pat Leahy, United States Senator
