Republican Gov. Phil Scott, administration to travel state
RUTLAND, Vt. (AP) — Republican Gov. Phil Scott and members of his cabinet will be spending the day in Rutland County talking with residents, lawmakers, local partners and state employees as the governor launches a new initiative called Capitol for the Day.
Scott says the intention is to give Vermonters access to the administration leadership and to allow cabinet members a chance to visit businesses, schools, community organizations and municipal offices.
The administration plans to visit all 14 counties this summer and fall.
The schedule on Monday in Rutland County includes a round-table discussion on energy affordability in Rutland; a visit to the Otter Valley Union School in Brandon; a meeting with county firefighters and emergency management staff in Pittsfield; and a discussion on creating a comprehensive one-stop job center in Rutland.
