Happy Vermont Workers Lower Taxes For All
Vermont taxes are high. The best way to lower taxes is to have
more people paying them.
Paid Family Leave will encourage young families to move to Vermont
& stay. Let's get on the same page as the Senate and put something
on the governor's desk.
Raise the minimum wage to $15/hour. Let's get on the same page
as the Senate and put something on the governor's desk.
I strongly support Prop-5, the consitutional amendment to
encode Roe v Wade into Vermont's Constitution
This winter did a number on our roads and sidewalks. Fix
the failed roads. Maintain the dodgy roads so they don't
fail. Maintainance is cheaper than rebuilding.
Continue supporting rural broadband in the budget
Update the zoning near Saxon Hill to allow for restuarants.
Doing so will encourage business to locate in Essex, and leverage
the new parkland for Essex businesses.
Importing Remote Workers
Extend the Vermont Remote Worker Incentive to
freelancers (like myself)
Add Student Loans as one of them things the program
will reimburse. How do you move to Vermont and buy a
house if you have $100k in student debt?!?
Remote Workers require fast broadband. Continue supporting
the rollout of Rural Broadband
Accept new graduates of Vermont State Colleges who stay in Vermont,
instead of accepting jobs out of state, in the Remote Worker
It saddens me that this even needs to be said: Global Warming Exists.
Let's continue to do our part in Vermont.
Find a reliable source for funding clean water. Rooms & Meals
is not recession-proof.
I preferred the cloud tax for this. We can fund clean water,
close a sales tax loophole, and support Vermont software
development if we exempt SaaS (software as a service) code running
on Vermont Data Centers
Modernize Vermont's bottle law. Extend deposit to all drinks.
Double the deposit to $0.10.
...except bottled water. Deposit on bottled water should be
raised to $0.25 to encourage reusable containers
I would have preferred a tax (like Chicago and DC have) on single-use
plastics than a ban. Two birds with one stone. But I support the
ban passed in 2019
Don't Gerrymander Essex: create an independent redistricting
commission to draw future Essex Wards
Break up Chittenden County's 6-member Senate District
Require Federal Candidates to disclose their tax returns -- just like
state-wide candidates must currently -- in order to be on a Vermont
Vermont's Legislature should start the constitutional amendment
that overturns Citizens United.
