"As I have in the State House, I will protect Vermont,s tradition of outdoor recreation and responsible gun ownership in Congress."
Peter's strong record of accomplishment in the legislature reflects his respect for the outdoor traditions of Vermont. He appreciates the issues of importance to sportsmen and women, from anglers and hunters to snowmobiliers and hikers, and will show the same commitment to these issues when representing Vermont outdoor enthusiasts in Washington. Peter was the lead sponsor of legislation creating Hunter Appreciation Day, the first of its kind in the nation, has a 100 percent National Rife Association (NRA) record and was the Vermont Association of Snowmobile Trails (VAST) legislator of the year. He will take to Washington a strong support for protecting and enhancing public access to our forests, our rivers, and our lakes for generations to enjoy.
