The phrase "Make Vermont more affordable" is often used by politicians, but I have concrete plans for how to improve Vermont's economy that will actually make Vermont more affordable for everyone:
An economy is supported by production, not by expanding state bureaucracy and programs beyond the ability of the underlying economy to endure. For decades Vermonters have struggled against ever-increasing fees, taxes and regulations. Reversing these, and supporting local business innovation, is the twin path to renewed growth, increased state revenue, and a more sustainable economy for all.
Governor Scott has been working hard to reverse our demographic crisis and improve Vermont's affordability but he has often been stymied by Progressive legislators who don't agree that we need more taxpayers in Vermont to lower the rates and relieve the tax burden on us all. I will provide Governor Scott with the legislative support and fiscal expertise he needs to execute our plans to grow the economy and truly make Vermont more affordable - for everyone.
As your next Orange District Senator, I will work hard to creatively fashion practical ways to put money back into citizens' hands, and support balanced economic growth for the benefit of all Vermonters!
