MIDDLEBURY, Vt. – Campaign for Vermont (CFV) founder Bruce Lisman is hosting a 90-minute public forum about creating job security and inclusive prosperity for all Vermonters from 6:30 – 8 pm on February 19 at Ilsley Public Library at 75 Main Street. The Middlebury forum is the second in a statewide series moderated by Lisman.
“We’re hosting these forums primarily to listen to Vermonters who want to share their point of view, the challenges they face and their aspirations for the future of our state,” Lisman said. “We also want to take the opportunity to learn from the panel of local social service providers, employers and other experts.”
Panel members will include Andrew Mayer, executive director of Addison County Chamber of Commerce; Paul Kervick, founding member of Living Well Residential Care Home in Bristol; and Bob Foster of Foster Brothers Farm in Middlebury.
The forums will highlight the economic and social indicators used to measure the effectiveness of current policy, as well as the need to support local organizations working to meet the increasing needs of the most vulnerable, Lisman said.
