Nico Howie '03 is on the campaign trail for Vermont Gov. Howard Dean, a candidate for U.S. President. Howie, who has completed his degree requirements and who will be back on campus for Commencement in May, is working as Dean's assistant research policy director.
Howie says he’s excited to be working for a candidate who is “outspoken against military action in Iraq under the current circumstances, is pro-choice, and who isn't afraid to vote or make decisions that contradict the Bush Administration's tax cuts and fiscal policy.”
“Dean believes in the Democratic Party, and is capable of reaching out to the international community for a multilateral focused foreign policy,” Howie says.
Dean is a physician who previously shared a medical practice with his wife, Dr. Judith Steinberg. Dean received his B.A. from Yale University in 1971 and his medical degree from Albert Einstein College of Medicine in New York City in 1978. He served in the Vermont House from 1982 to 1986; was elected lieutenant governor in 1986, and became governor in 1991.
