House Speaker Shap Smith to Speak at County Dems Meeting‏

With the passage of the Obama Stimulus Package, a.k.a. the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act, the Vermont legislature is in the process of integrating its financial provisions into our state budget. Not surprisingly, the goals of Gov. Douglas differ fundamentally from the goals of Democrats and Progressives. Many of us will have a chance to hear from our local legislators this week at Town Meeting. On Monday, March 16th, we will have the opportunity to hear from Speaker of the Vermont House, Shap Smith, at our Chittenden County Democrats meeting. This meeting will take place at 7:30 PM at the IBEW Union Training Hall, 5 Gregory Drive, South Burlington.

Also, the Chittenden County Democrats Show on CCTV Channel 17 in Burlington and surrounding towns taped on Monday, March 2nd, features freshman representative Terry Macaig of Williston. We talked about his experiences adapting to his responsibilities as a legislator. You can look for rebroadcasts of the program on CCTV, LCATV and VCAM later in the month, or you can stream it online at
