Letters to the Editor

To the Editor,
Vermont State Rep. Laura Sibilia  recently introduced the veteran partial property tax relief bill, H.227.
H.227 is a bill which would extend the partial property tax exemption to all veterans residing in the state of Vermont. Presently, partial property tax relief is...
To the Editor,
Vermont living is not easy, especially when you relocate from metropolitan surroundings. But once I got to know the people who make up this valley I could not imagine being anywhere else. My family has had its ups and downs living here, both business and personal, especially...
To the Editor,
The Legislature’s Next Generation Commission was asked to develop a plan to encourage Vermonters to live and work in Vermont. Six months later, it reported that “Vermont faces critical demographic shifts” and we must “implement bold strategies immediately if it is to retain...
