Bernie Sanders was elected to the U.S. Senate in 2006 after serving 16 years
in the House of Representatives. He is the longest serving independent
member of Congress in American history. Born in 1941 in Brooklyn, Bernie was
the younger of two sons in a modest-income family. After graduation from the
University of Chicago in 1964, he moved to Vermont. Early in his career,
Sanders was director of the American People's Historical Society. Elected
Mayor of Burlington by 10 votes in 1981, he served four terms. Before his
1990 election as Vermont's at-large member in Congress, Sanders lectured at
the John F. Kennedy School of Government at Harvard and at Hamilton College
in upstate New York.
The Almanac of American Politics has called Sanders a "practical" and
"successful legislator." He has focused on the shrinking middle class and
widening income gap in America that is greater than at any time since the
Great Depression. Other priorities include reversing global warming,
universal health care, fair trade policies, supporting veterans and
preserving family farms. He serves on five Senate committees: Budget;
Veterans; Energy; Environment; and Health, Education, Labor and Pensions.
