2017 Legislative session  opens!




As we get going on this legislative  session, with concerns about

 what's happening in Washington, looming large on our horizon, 

how it all effects us in Vermont is still to be determined.


Irregardless, we still need to keep the work going on our state 

priorities of basic services like roads, bridges, schools and 

taking care of our vulnerable neighbors, and continuing work on

growing the economy, cleaning the land and water in Vermont

 and leaving the state cleaner than we found it for our kids, 

and theirs.



We are grateful that Gov. Scott has taken a stand against the 

President's attacks on immigrants and New Americans. 

However, the Governor budget proposal to attack K-12 funding to 

increase funds for Early Ed and the State Colleges, is tantamount

 to say, he's going to give one child more to eat, but he's going to

 take it from the plate of another child.


We can do better for all our kids and our educational system, but 

not by pitting one group against another.

Let's work together to find a better way.

Stay tuned.
