Lt. Governor Phil Scott started his "Vermont Everyday Jobs" initiative to promote Vermont businesses and highlight the hard work that Vermonters do every day in all areas of our economy. Lt. Governor Scott plans to take a few times each month, as his schedule permits, to work a few hours in different facilities, offices, factories and farms around the state.
The tour also helps facilitate relationships and ongoing dialogue between the Vermont business community -- to include everyone from company owners to custodial crews -- and their representatives in state government.
If you would like to invite the Lt. Governor to work in your "Everyday Job," please contact us!
