Scott and administration to visit Lamoille for 10th 'Capitol for a Day'

Tue, 12/04/2018 - 11:48am -- tim

Vermont Business Magazine Governor Phil Scott and members of his Cabinet will be in Lamoille County on Wednesday, December 5 for its tenth Capitol for a Day visit. The initiative has brought the governor and members of his cabinet and extended cabinet to Rutland, Caledonia, Windsor, Franklin, Bennington, Addison, Chittenden, Orleans and Windham counties since the start of the summer.

“These visits have been tremendously valuable to me and my entire Cabinet, as we work to learn more about each region’s opportunities, challenges and the positive impact we can have when we work together,” said Governor Scott. “As we look towards the upcoming legislative session, better understanding the needs of each community is critical.”

Capitol for a Day gives local constituents, municipal governments and other partners the opportunity to connect directly with State leadership and staff. The Administration will visit each of the state’s 14 counties as part of this initiative.
