VT ECONOMY-

Supporting and promoting local businesses and Main Street is the way through for a thriving Vermont economy that both serves the people and creates job security and reliable income.

 

Doing business with neighbors is a reciprocal contract that also typically results in building healthy relationships and thus strengthening our community and also helping to ensure quality in work and products.

 

In order to keep money in Vermont and help each other to thrive; buying local and seeking products and services within our neighborhoods and state is key to the success of Vermont and Vermonters

 

Main street and innovation and ingenuity by the people are the antidotes to global corporate predators.

Inflation is reaching unprecedented levels, this is making it so difficult for many Vermonters to afford, gas, groceries, heating fuel and other costs of living.  With rampant spending and printing money at the federal level, a dollar's worth has steadily declined.  Unfortunately, this is a form of taxation and us the taxpayers and our descendants will need to deal with the repercussions here.  This affects all of us, especially those in the low income bracket, younger people just getting started, retired people, the elderly and those on fixed incomes.  Continuing to afford to live in Vermont is a concern for many people today.  Fiscal responsibility and spending in the government is a top priority if we want to halt inflation and the decline of the dollar so that we can all afford to live here and pay for our expenses.

 

The rediscovery and implementation of the endless applications of hemp for not only health but to improve soil, as animal feed, clothing, fuel and building materials will have a positive impact on Vermont.  There is also the Northern Vermont University (NVU) initiative to reinvigorate the forest product industry in Northern Vermont and New Hampshire.  Working within our communities and our state we could create a truly independent, sustainable system that would benefit all Vermonters and become a model for other states to emulate.  Real solutions that serve Vermont and provide opportunities for all Vermonters and especially our young people deserve energy and focus.  There is so much more we can do to make a difference here. 

 

Community education and marketing of local products, service and businesses is key to continuing to build a successful Vermont based economy. Vermont is well on its way to becoming fully sustainable and secure with regards to food, services, and a fully integrated local economy. I am dedicated to keeping the momentum here and working towards its success.

Supporting and promoting local businesses and Main Street is the way through for a thriving Vermont economy that both serves the people and creates job security and reliable income. A flourishing economy is a collaborative effort between all community members. A successful, local Vermont economy is possible when the products and services that Vermonters have to offer are accessible and available and Vermont consumers are committed to supporting our local economy as much as possible. Fortunately, in Vermont this trend is already in play, and many are aware of the importance of our VT economy. This is a very conscious mutually beneficial relationship that serves all Vermonters and works to keep money and trade in our state. Doing business with neighbors is a reciprocal contract that also typically results in building healthy relationships and thus strengthening our community and also helping to ensure quality in work and products.

Human to Human contact and exchange will allow humanity to continue to thrive in a technolgical world.

 

 

A supported, well rounded thriving economy on Main Street and in our rural neighborhoods is the answer to the corporate greed and the exponentially growing elite and the gap between the rich and the poor. In order to keep money in Vermont and help each other to thrive, buying local and seeking products and services within our neighborhoods and state is key to the success of Vermont and Vermonters. In addition to a proper corporate tax structure that fairly uses corporate gains to create opportunity for social services and endeavors that benefit the people and communities, keeping money with our small local businesses will also help to keep the corporate beasts in check and prevent their continued feasting and long term, constant attempts at total control and domination of markets. Main street is the antidote to global corporate predators.

 

Small businesses took a hit through covid, so many sadly closed during this time. Supporting and promoting the growth of our local businesses and neighbors will help us grow Vermont in a healthy way that serves all. I am fully committed to helping Vermonters find a way and have the services to support their existing businesses and also to help those with a vision start a new business here and establish themselves. Looking at tax adjustments, community based investments, and supportive, less restrictive bank loans are all possible answers for small local business' growth and opportunity.

 

Community education and marketing of local products, service and businesses is key to continuing to build a successful Vermont based economy. Vermont is well on its way to becoming fully sustainable and secure with regards to food, services, and a fully integrated local economy. I do believe this is possible and is worth exploring for many reasons including financial security and stability as well as the health of Vermonters and our environment. I am dedicated to keeping the momentum here and working towards its success.
