Moderator Gary Holloway (VT Department of Housing and Community Development) is joined by panelists Jody Fried (Catamount Arts), Robert McBride (Rockingham Arts and Museum Project), Bill Moore (Town of Brandon), and Orly Munzing (Strolling of the Heifers).

The Vermont Community Leadership Summit, produced by the Vermont Council on Rural Development, aims to support, encourage, inspire and train leaders with the skills they need to succeed. Summit findings will contribute to a strategic planning process that works to advance opportunities, training, and partnerships to meet the needs of all kinds of leaders; expand leadership engagement in communities; and advance public policies and programs to support the long-term future of community leadership and all it means to the strength of our democracy and the vitality of our Vermont communities. In a democracy, all citizens are called upon to lead – where leaders step up, towns achieve great things. Local Citizens Make It Happen!

Leahy, Sanders And Welch Back Legislation To Restore Net Neutrality

In a joint statement, Leahy, Sanders, and Welch said: “A free and open internet is essential to our economy, a free flow of ideas, creativity, and participatory democracy. The Administration’s decision to repeal net neutrality is bad for our democracy and bad for consumers and entrepreneurs, especially in rural areas, and a gift to the big telecom companies who can now pick and choose who has access to the internet and at what speed. Our legislation will reverse this anti-consumer move and ensure that the internet remains open and accessible to all Americans.”
