General: (political statement of goals, objectives, views, philosophies)
Wendy Wilton will be an independent voice in the Vermont State Treasurer's Office. Wilton will focus on maintaining Vermont's bond rating, providing better transparency for the state's fiscal matters, and offering real solutions to solving the state's $1.2 billion pension underfunding problem, that will be fair to both the employees and the taxpayers of the state. Her social-political views are moderate.

Regarding transparency, Wilton will shine the light on the state's finances by putting timely financial information about the state budget and the state's performance on-line in an easy to understand format for use by lawmakers and voters of the state. This will reverse a D- rating the state of Vermont has recieved for fiscal transparency from the US Public Interest Research Group, and provide a new dimension in financial literacy to include the operations of state government for its citizens.

Wilton led the turn around in the fiscal health of the City of Rutland as the City Treasurer since 2007. During that time, Rutland reversed a $5 million deficit to a $3.8 million positive fund balance in the general fund and the first 'clean' audit in 32 years, largely due to her efforts to make the financial information available to the city's managment, governing body and most importantly the public, thus leading to accountability.
