Peter Hirschfeld, Statehouse reporter

Help shape my reporting:

The Vermont Statehouse is often called the people’s house. I am your eyes and ears there. I keep a close eye on how legislation could affect your life; I also regularly speak to the people who write that legislation. The more I hear from you, the better I’ll be at my job. So, what issues do you want lawmakers to focus on? What info do you most urgently need? 

I'm eager to hear from you. Get in touch using the form below:
