Speaker Krowinski and Pro Tem Balint Hear Hopes and Concerns from Addison County; Affordable Housing Front and Center
Yesterday, Vermont House Speaker Jill Krowinski and Pro Tem Becca Balint took to Zoom to hear from dozens of Addison County residents about their hopes and concerns for the future of our county. The below message summarizes the major themes they heard, with a strong emphasis on the need for affordable housing, child care, and workforce development:
We heard from close to 50 community members about what matters most, what you struggle with, and what you envision for the future of Addison County and Vermont.
We listened and took careful notes on your input. Here are just a few of the the insights we heard:
All this, and our listening tour has only just begun! We’ll combine your ideas with those that we collect from future regional conversations, from our online questionnaire, and through intentional outreach to individuals and groups who weren’t at the table. Before the Legislature convenes in January, we’ll conduct a careful analysis of ideas from all our conversations so that we can bring overarching themes and your insights to inform the Legislature’s policy and budgetary work.
Please consider taking a next step to help us ensure we’re hearing the many voices of Vermonters:
Together, we are seizing this once in a lifetime opportunity to make significant investments in the future of our state. Thank you for your important contribution!
