Priemer’s major political consciousness was formed as a 1993 BA Degree graduate in political
science at St. Michael’s College in Burlington, Vermont and in this “green” city and state he
formed his environmental and urban planning consciousness. Priemer’s goal is to make his part

recreate in harmony and with respect to the local community.

He joined his father and mentor, J. Gordon Priemer in 1993 and has spent much of his career as a
