David Zuckerman is Lieutenant Governor of Vermont.
David Duhalde March 26 2019:
Had a nice meeting with David Zuckerman! A member of Vermont’s Progressive Party, he is the highest ranking elected “third party” official in the country. A top candidate of Our Revolution last fall, LG Zuckerman, an organic farmer who was inspired by Bernie Sanders in 1992 to get in politics, is a great example of the grassroots movement we’re building. — with David Zuckerman.

Supported Progressive Health Care Reform
In late 2009, David Zuckerman was one of more than 1,000 state legislators to sign a letter entitled "State Legislators for Progressive Health Care Reform". The letter was a project of the Progressive States Network and was developed in consultation with national health care reform advocates, including the AFL-CIO, AFSCME, Community Catalyst, Families USA, Herndon Alliance, National Women's Law Center, Northeast Action, SEIU, and Universal Health Care Action Network. The letter reads in part,
- "Failure to pass national comprehensive health reform now will further jeopardize state and local budgets, undermining public services like education, public safety, and transportation infrastructure... We, the undersigned, call on President Obama and the Congress to enact bold and comprehensive health care reform this year – based on these principles and a strong federal-state collaboration – and pledge our support as state legislators and allies in pursuit of guaranteed, high quality, affordable health care for all."
