 Governor Phil Scott
State of Vermont

Mr. Scott became the 82nd Governor of Vermont in January 2017, and in November 2020 was overwhelmingly re-elected to a third term. As Governor, he is committed to making a difference in the lives of Vermonters by growing the state’s economy, making Vermont more affordable, and protecting the most vulnerable.  



Legislative Preview
Patti Komline, Legal Professional
Downs Rachlin Martin

After having served for 12 years as a state legislator, Ms. Komline leverages her unique perspective while serving her clients at the State House. Having interacted with lobbyists during her tenure she understands what resonates, and as importantly what does not, when communicating with lawmakers. Believing in the good intentions on all sides of issues makes it easy for Patti to develop respectful relationships which has been the foundation for her work. This, paired with her ardent persistence, has led to her clients’ success.
