Bernie Sanders’ political career began when he was elected as the mayor of Burlington, Vermont in 1981. Since then, Sanders has been a Representative, as well as a Senator. He was Vermont’s sole congressman in the House of Representatives for 16 years, a member of the Committee of Veterans Affairs.
Until he made his decision to run for president, he had not labeled himself as a member of the Democratic party. He was America’s longest-serving independent politician in Congress.
Before politics, Bernie Sanders had many jobs such as carpentry, and journalism, just to name a few. Born and raised in New York, Sanders’ education includes James Madison High School, Brooklyn College, and the University of Chicago. He currently resides in Burlington, Vermont with his wife Jane.
