Press Release


  1. Deborah Wright :

    Vermont government fails to capture the needs of Southern Vermont by holding these sessions in Montpelier, Burlington. All businesses, including small business owners, wanting to access government contracting cannot take an entire day off from working their business to go up north. This is the 21st century! Is it really beyond the capability of state government to run a “webinar” to allow access to those more than an hour away to participate?
