Lt. Governor Phil Scott is partnering with the Brattleboro Development Credit Corporation to host the “Southern Vermont Economy Pitch” on March 9th from 4pm-6pm.
During the two-hour session at Vernon Elementary School, Vernon, VT, legislators and the general public from across Southern Vermont region will hear representatives of the region’s business community propose steps lawmakers could take which will have a positive impact on the State’s economy.
“Vermont’s business community is very good at problem-solving and thinking outside of the box,” said Lt. Gov. Scott. “In my opinion, no issue on the table right now other than public safety is more important than growing our economy and easing the financial burden on Vermonters, and I’m heartened to see so many lawmakers eager to consider fresh ideas.”
“With all of the work the BDCC and SeVEDS have done over the past few years in promoting regional awareness, we are delighted to see so many engaged regional business owners and community members embrace the opportunity to enhance Vermont’s business climate through legislation.”
said Adam Grinold, executive director of the Brattleboro Development Credit Corp. “We are truly lucky to have such intimate access to our state leaders here in Vermont and are so pleased to be partnering with them to put on our Pitch Night. This event and others like it across the state, ensure a broad spectrum of voices surrounding economic development initiatives will be heard.”
The “Southern Vermont Economy Pitch” is the fourth pitch session this year, following the “Vermont Economy Pitch” in Montpelier on January 7, the “Rutland Economy Pitch” on February 9 and the “Franklin County and Grand Isle Economy Pitch” on February 12.
