Andrew Sullivan - Incumbent

I moved to Vermont in 2011 to teach English to speakers of other languages, and I began working at the Co-op in 2016. In 2017, I enrolled as a member in order to vote at the annual meeting. My partner and I met at a film-screening at the Co-op two years ago.  
 
I love the Co-op for many of the same reasons that I love Vermont. Where else does the Lieutenant Governor deliver vegetables from his farm to your store in the morning? I want the Co-op to flourish in order to provide long-term employment, a market for local vendors, and the best possible groceries and customer service to our loyal member-owners.   
 
I want to be a voice on the council for all members of the Co-op, including employees. As a current council member, I initiated the formation of a Communications Committee, and I sat in on meetings of the Bylaws Revision Committee.  
 
I have leadership experience with a variety of organizations, including the Occupy Burlington activists’ collective, the Democratic Socialists of America, and our own union, UE Local 255. In all of these activities, I have combined my passion for the missions of the groups with an earnest effort to make all participants feel included and appreciated. As a member of the council, I would bring patience, attention, and enthusiasm.  
 
I look forward to connecting with members as much as possible to learn their brilliant ideas for our organization. The pandemic has required rapid adaptation. Both Co-op members and staff have been resilient during this crisis. We have started a curbside service, and we have implemented a number of procedures to increase safety. We have all been relieved and humbled by the Co-op’s resilience in the face of this calamity.
