LUDLOW, Vt. – In a packed luncheon meeting of the Ludlow Rotary Club, Governor Phil Scott joined the group to meet fellow Rotarians and speak.
Growing the economy was one of Scott’s most important topics, while making Vermont more affordable and creating ways to keep young adults in Vermont.
A point well made was, “6, 3 and 1.” Vermont’s aging population and stagnant population growth sees an average of six Vermont workers leave daily. On average, three students per day withdraw from our school, and one Vermont child per day is born exposed to drugs. Gov. Scott commented that he keeps this stat in the back of his mind and tries to improve the future of Vermont.
Scott is a native Vermonter from Barre and is the states 82nd governor. As a small Vermont businessman, he saw the need for positive improvements to Vermont economic, housing and health issues. This led Phil Scott to run for political office and today in the Governor of Vermont.
