This morning Brian Shupe (Vermont Natural Resources Council), Michael Sacca (Alliance for Vermont Communities), Brenda Petrella (aslo of AVC), Ted Hoyt, Jim Briglin (State Rep), John Echeverria (AVC) and Gary Mullen all spoke out to support the house resolution opposing the NewVistas development.
“There is a deep and vital connection between the natural resource base of our communities and the lives of the the people who live there.” - Michael Sacca
“We cannot destroy what people come here to find.” - Fish and Wildlife Natural Resources Committee
These were some of the most moving testimonies we've heard. Thank you to everyone who came up to speak and listen in support. We look forward to updating everyone on the status of the resolution. It was an important day in the effort to oppose NewVistas and for the future of land use in Vermont.
Again, thank you all for your continued support. Look for articles on this in VT Digger and the Valley News soon.
Everyone at AVC
