Thank you to all who supported me in my reelection, and I look forward to representing everyone in House District Windham-Bennington.

As we approach the new biennium in January we face three major challenges:

1. Irene long-term recovery. Following our initial handling of the crisis, that gave us good reason to be proud as Vermonters, we need to continue working with FEMA for the funding that we in good faith have planned upon.

2, Economic development with livable-wage jobs. We need to expand the economy through increased structural and electronic infrastructure, decreased property tax dependency with accountable education spending, entrepreneurial support, workforce training and housing, and a small business-friendly state bank.

3. Reinforced essential programs. Through the creation of a people’s budget and fair taxation, we need to strengthen programs that serve all Vermonters, including the low income, young, elderly, and disabled.
