State Representative Charles “Butch” Shaw of Pittsford announces candidacy for re-election

Charles “Butch” Shaw of Pittsford is announcing his candidacy for re-election to a seventh term to the Vermont House of Representatives to represent the citizens of the new Legislative district of Rutland-8 which includes the Towns of Pittsford and Proctor. Butch was first appointed to the House by former Governor Jim Douglas in 2009 to represent Rutland District-6.

Shaw has developed a reputation in Montpelier as a legislator that fiercely represents and protects his district while understanding the challenges of navigating the intricacies of state government. The relationships he has developed with his House and Senate colleagues and with the administration have proven to be a valuable legislative asset in pursuit of developing well thought out legislation and in constituent advocacy.

Shaw serves as vice chair of the powerful House Committee on Transportation where his experience as a small business owner and a veteran legislator has proven extremely valuable in preparing the transportation budget and developing policy to guide the Agency of Transportation. He has also been appointed by the Speaker of the House to serve on the influential Joint House and Senate Justice Oversight Committee where his negotiating skills prove useful in developing justice system policy, the Joint Judicial Retention Committee and on the Joint Legislative Advisory Committee on the State House.

“In this unprecedented time of a public health crisis and financial insecurity it is imperative to move Vermont forward in a safe, healthy, and fiscally responsible manner. I am up to this task and now announce my candidacy for re-election for another term to represent constituents in the new district of Pittsford and Proctor,” Shaw said Tuesday, May 10!

Shaw and his wife Mary, native Vermonters, have lived in Pittsford since 1968 and both have served their community in many different endeavors. Butch has a proven history of being a reliable and responsive legislator who puts his constituents and district first. He is looking forward to continuing to represent them in the future.
