Opinion: Milne has right vision for state
As a young adult living in Vermont, I feel so privileged to reside in a state filled with natural beauty, rich history, and kind-hearted people. However, like many young Vermonters, I’m at a crossroads over where I plan to live as I approach the next stage in my life. The direction of our state government is an important factor in my decision, as it is for many other young Vermont residents. I want to live in a state with economic security, employment opportunities and a quality education system.
Scott Milne, candidate for governor, is committed to these goals. Scott believes in a government committed to common sense and practical thinking, rather than status-quo politics, in determining which solutions are best for Vermont. He will take a business-oriented approach to fix our state’s rising unemployment rate, slow economic growth, and multi-billion dollar budget deficit. Scott will create a business-friendly Vermont by reducing burdensome regulations and taxes, thus providing economic certainty to small business owners. Scott will also reform our broken education system to improve school quality and reduce costs.
Scott is a small business owner, father and supporter of over 100 civic and nonprofit organizations, with family roots in Vermont dating back 100 years. Former Vermont Gov. James Douglas, as well as dozens of legislators, have endorsed Scott for his commonsense solutions. I ask my fellow Vermonters to do the same by voting for Scott Milne for governor on Nov. 4.
