a working mother, for the working family

THIS IS MY WHY,

THEY ARE MY EVERYTHING

MY FOCUS

TAXES AND AFFORDABILITY

Every year the Vermont spending budget increases while the population dwindles. People and families are leaving Vermont because of the unaffordable cost of living. Those of us sticking it out are experiencing an ever increasing personal tax burden each year. The Vermont tax payer is not a bottomless piggy bank split open for the spending whims of our legislatures. 

This Forbes magazine article from 2016 lamenting the TAX HAPPY ways of Vermont still holds true today. Only some of the names have changed and the spending has grown.

BUSINESSES AND JOBS

The business climate of Vermont does not support the eager hardworking people looking for quality jobs. Vermont has consistently ranked among one of the worst states in the country for small business. Over 90% of Vermont businesses are considered small businesses and are essential to a viable economy and populace. Erroneous legislation is pushing out existing businesses and discouraging new ones, making it increasingly difficult for every person hoping to make a living in this beautiful state.

Chief Executive ranked Vermont at #39 on their 2018 Best & Worst States for Business list.

CHILDHOOD EDUCATION AND SAFETY

There is a lot that Vermont is doing right for our children, our educators and supporting faculty. There is also room for improvement on all fronts. Balancing quality, security and cost is absolutely paramount.

Vermont ranks 4th overall on this list of States With The Best Schools. We have the highest per pupil spending as well as the smallest student/teacher ratio and highest graduation rate in the country.
