Senator Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.), the incoming chairman of the Senate Committee on Health, Education, Labor, and Pensions visited Essex High School and the Center for Technology, Essex to hold a student town meeting on Thursday. 


“Last year, I was lucky enough to hear from thousands of Vermont students all across our state,” said Sanders. “Every time, I am impressed by their insights and ideas about how we move forward in our communities, in our state, and in our country. To my mind, if we are to address the many crises we face, we must listen to young people and encourage them to engage in the political process.”


Senator Sanders also met with educators and took a tour of CTE during his visit.
