Biography

Elected for the first time in 2022, Becca Balint is the first woman and first LGBTQ person to represent Vermont in Congress. She spent her career as a middle school history teacher before serving in the Vermont state senate where she became Senate President. Becca ran for Congress to help regular people, protect our planet, and save our democracy. She believes the fight for our democracy is the fight of our lives: protecting voting rights, standing up to hatred and cynicism, and fighting for regular people every day, not billionaires. In Congress, Becca has focused on increasing access to mental health care, fighting for affordable housing, protecting LGBTQ+ kids and families, supporting Vermont farmers, and standing up to the hatred and cynicism of MAGA Republicans in Congress. Becca believes that with courage, and kindness, we can make change. She lives in Brattleboro, Vermont with her wife Elizabeth, children Abe and Sarah, and their goldendoodle Wheelie.
