Main Street Alliance names Scheu Legislator of the Year

MIDDLEBURY — Main Street Alliance of Vermont held its fifth anniversary celebration at the Alchemist Brewery in Stowe on Sunday night where they presented Rep. Robin Scheu, D-Middlebury, the 2019 Legislator of the Year Award.
“We are thrilled to recognize Rep. Robin Scheu for her work this past legislative session to advance the family and medical leave insurance bill,” said Ashley Moore, state director. “Representative Scheu was the lead sponsor of the bill and worked tirelessly throughout this past legislative session to move a strong version forward in the House. We know she will carry that commitment into the 2020 session.”
Scheu represents the Addison-1 district (Middlebury) and is a member of the House Ways and Means Committee. She is currently on the board of the Vermont Sustainable Jobs Fund. She was executive director of Addison County Economic Development Corporation for nine years.
“I am both honored and humbled to receive this award as I have great respect for the work Main Street Alliance does to support small business owners who are the backbone of our economy,” Scheu said. “While I am very disappointed that H.107 did not pass this session, I will do all I can to ensure that we pass a strong bill early next year. Working Vermonters and small businesses are counting on us.”
