As a small business owner in Vermont, I’ve witnessed first-hand many of our state’s challenges.
Finding qualified workers, navigating a complex permitting system, and remaining competitive
with a neighboring state--that doesn’t even have a sales tax--are a fact of life for me. But I have
an obligation to my employees to ensure their wages are paid, and an obligation to my
customers to offer quality products. But with a lack of support in Montpelier--with the exception
of Governor Scott--it’s a challenge to keep the wheels turning.
That’s why I’m supporting Don Turner for Lieutenant Governor. Don understands the needs of
our smallest businesses--for both employers and employees. He knows we are in desperate
need of permit reform and tax relief to keep our state competitive. But Don also understands the
need for a comprehensive education system, investments in workforce development, and
support for affordable housing to create an economic environment for people to live, work and
raise a family.
We need common-sense policies under the Golden Dome to restore a focus on affordability and
economic growth. Don Turner has a proven track record of working across the aisle to get
things done on these incredibly important issues. That’s why I hope you’ll join me in voting for
Don Turner for Lieutenant Governor on November 6th.
