EMILYs List Congratulates Beth Pearce on Her Reelection as Vermont State Treasurer
WASHINGTON, D.C. – Tonight, EMILYs List, the nation’s largest resource for women in politics, congratulated Beth Pearce on winning reelection as Vermont state treasurer. Stephanie Schriock, president of EMILY's List, released the following statement:
“Congratulations to Vermont State Treasurer Beth Pearce on her reelection tonight. With 40 years of experience working in finance for state and local governments and nearly a decade as state treasurer, Beth has long demonstrated that she has the experience and skills to efficiently manage state resources and protect taxpayers' hard-earned dollars. From promoting financial literacy to strengthening pension security, her office is building a future that will expand economic opportunity and prosperity for all Vermonters, and EMILYs List is incredibly proud to stand with such a strong champion for working families. We can’t wait to see what Beth accomplishes in her next term.”
EMILYs List, the nation’s largest resource for women in politics, has raised over $600 million to elect pro-choice Democratic women candidates. With a grassroots community of over five million members, EMILY's List helps Democratic women win competitive campaigns – across the country and up and down the ballot – by recruiting and training candidates, supporting strong campaigns, researching the issues that impact women and families, and turning out women voters to the polls. Since our founding in 1985, we have helped elect 150 women to the House, 26 to the Senate, 16 governors, and nearly 1,100 women to state and local office. Nearly 40 percent of the candidates EMILYs List has helped elect to Congress have been women of color. During the historic 2017-2018 cycle, EMILYs List raised a record-breaking $110 million and launched a record independent expenditure campaign. We helped elect 34 new women to the House, including 24 red-to-blue victories; enough seats to have delivered the U.S. House majority alone. Since the 2016 election, more than 60,000 women have reached out to EMILY's List about running for office laying the groundwork for the next decade of candidates for local, state, and national offices.
