Peter Galbraith

GalbraithToo often in Montpelier, the special interest prevails over the public interest while the needs of working Vermonters are overlooked. Throughout his career as a diplomat and elected official, Peter has stood up for the underdog even if it means challenging the conventional wisdom. As a two-term Senator from Windham County, Peter focused on progressive causes. He voted against every special interest tax break and corporate subsidy, and championed legislation to ban corporate campaign contributions in Vermont.

A lifelong Townshend resident, Galbraith uncovered and helped stop Saddam Hussein’s genocide against the Kurds as a Senate staffer. In 1993, he was appointed the first U.S. Ambassador to Croatia where he negotiated the peace agreement that ended the Croatian War. He served with the United Nations in East Timor and Afghanistan.
