Carolyn Whitney Branagan, Republican Candidate For State Treasurer

A Fresh Perspective & Increased Communication For Vermont

For 25 years Vermont state government shorted the Retirement Fund putting at risk the promises made to Vermont state workers and Vermont public school teachers. We have a moral and legal obligation to make good on those promises. ~Carolyn

I served seven terms in the Vermont House. One term in the Senate. Most days I loved my work, but sometimes it was a bit stressful. Voters trust me and I want to continue to reach more Vermonters.

I am ready to return to Montpelier and I need your help. Any contribution will help to offset the cost of messaging and I promise to use it to help Vermonters for generations.

We do not need more taxes. We need solutions. I will lead all parties, work with legislators, connect with taxpayers, and bring ideas to the table. Let's get to work. Thank you, take care. ~Carolyn

Carolyn Branagan

Republican Candidate For Vermont State Treasurer

"I have always loved campaigning, no surprise there! Meeting people and talking about the issues we all face is the best part of running for office.

Having served eight terms in the statehouse, I know about campaigning. But this season is unlike any other. Our public health officials are respected professionals. I will be following their recommendations on social distancing and safety to protect each of you, myself, and our families from the virus that causes COVID-19.

This year, in-person campaigning will be minimal. Parades, county fairs, music evenings, in-person community debates, meet and greet sessions, etc. are all the parts of campaigning that I love, but will likely not be on my calendar.

But don’t worry, I’ll find a way to share my plans for improving Vermont’s State Treasurer’s Office.

And I want and need to hear from you. Debates, discussions, communications will occur virtually, in writing, videos, and through Zoom-like get-togethers.

So that’s it for now. The campaign for VT State Treasurer is now underway and I must get back to work.

I am looking forward to a positive and SAFE 2020 political season! Stay healthy everyone."

I just finished my absentee Republican primary ballot. I made sure I voted for Carolyn Branagan for Vermont State Treasurer. I've known her for years and covered her as a reporter in the Vermont Legislature. If you want to see us tackle and eliminate the HUGE state deficit, vote for Branagan.

One of the things I frequently get excited about is Carolyn's posts describing Vermont's finances' developments. Sounds lame, 'I get excited about my state's financial developments.' Still, Carolyn has a way of putting it in words that make it exciting and helps everyone understand how these developments affect us directly. I'm sick of not understanding how our tax money is spent, and I appreciate Carolyn's efforts to demystify this aspect of our government.

2020 Campaign Information

From Carolyn: On May 28th, I filed papers in the Secretary of State’s Office to run for Vermont State Treasurer. A major reason I am running is my concern over the huge shortfall in the state’s ability to pay for the retirement of state employees, teachers and municipal workers. More coming from me on this and other issues soon.
