Burlington Young Professionals Hosts ‘YP Congressional Forum’, May 19

-A A +A

Burlington Young Professionals (BYP), a program of the Lake Champlain Chamber, will host a “YP Congressional Forum” on May 19, 6-8 p.m. at Main Street Landing with the four leading Democratic primary candidates – Becca Balint, Sianay Chase Clifford, Molly Gray and Kesha Ram Hinsdale. This highly contested race for the state’s lone congressional seat will be a historic moment for Vermont.

“This is a real opportunity for young professionals to engage with state-level issues and ask these candidates how they might address some of our most pressing challenges – affordability, retention, housing, climate change, among others,” said Alex Bunten, BYP director. 

The event will be hybrid to ensure broad participation opportunities for young professionals across the state. Channel 17/Town Meeting TV will stream the event live and there will be an opportunity to submit questions in advance of the forum. 

In-person registration will be limited to 60 people. The in-person event will host a reception from 6-7 p.m. and the candidate forum will take place from 7-8 p.m. Registration will close on May 17. 

This event is sponsored by Main Street Landing
