Why is this important?
A strong economy is key to creating greater opportunity for all Vermonters and communities.
By restoring Vermont’s economic and fiscal fundamentals, we can work toward ensuring vibrant communities and a thriving economy in all 251 Vermont towns; classrooms full of kids who graduate with more opportunities to start a career right here; and where we always have the resources to invest in a cleaner environment, safer neighborhoods and protecting our most vulnerable.
With policies focused on expanding growth to all 14 counties, we can help all families and all kids feel the hope of a bright future in Vermont.
