Conor Casey is running uncontested for District 2 City Council.

It has been an honor to represent you for the past two years as a District 2 Councilor.

I’m eager to serve a second term and give back to the city that has given so much to me over 15 years. In a time when national politics have become so volatile, it has been a pleasure to work with such engaged residents, dedicated public employees, and passionate volunteers to make our community a better place.

The Council has worked hard during my first term to pass responsible budgets that reflect Montpelier’s values. We’ve invested in affordable housing, capital improvements, and adding much-needed staff. As councilor, I’ve advocated for the passage of a single-use plastics ban and giving non-U.S. citizens voting rights in local elections. I’ve also sponsored an ordinance to set a prevailing wage and safety standards for construction workers, making Montpelier the first in the state to do so. I’m excited to continue some of the projects I’m working on, such as establishing a door-to-door micro-transit program and creating recreational opportunities along our riverfront.

If re-elected, I’ll continue being a city councilor who knocks on doors, holds forums, and testifies at the Legislature to get the job done. I’m not running for City Council simply to fill a seat—our city can adopt bold, new ideas and set an example for other municipalities across the state. Thank you for your support!
