Economic development pitches to be heard in Middlebury
MIDDLEBURY — Addison County Economic Development Corp. (ACEDC) announces that Lt. Gov. Phil Scott is coming to Middlebury to hear from Addison County businesses, educators, students, local governments, social service agencies and others about prospects for improving Vermont’s economy.
Scott has been hosting a series of what he calls “economic pitch sessions” around the state, at which people present their ideas for economic prosperity.
ACEDC is joining Scott to host the event on Monday, March 23, from 4 to 6 p.m. at the Kirk Alumni Center at Middlebury College.
“As I’ve traveled the state on these ‘economy pitches,’ what strikes me is that — despite our regional differences — our business communities are very much on the same page in terms of what they need to prosper,” said Lt. Gov. Scott. “Some of the suggestions from earlier pitches have already been turned into legislation, and I’m eager to hear what Addison County brings to the table, and in turn, what legislators bring back to Montpelier.”
Speakers are being sought to make their five-minute pitches for improving Vermont and Addison County’s economy. Those interested in being presenters should send their materials to ACEDC Executive Director Robin Scheu via email at [email protected] by March 18. Pitches should be positive, actionable and within the purview of state government.
“This economy pitch is an excellent occasion for local Addison County businesses and others to get exposure in Montpelier,” said Robin Scheu. “I think these pitches will help lawmakers better understand our needs and opportunities.”
