The following commentary is by Paul Dame, chair of the Vermont GOP.
While Republicans remain in the minority the only tools we have at our disposable to improve the condition of our beloved state are to sustain the governor’s veto, and sound the alarm of Democrats abuse of power. That is the held we have been dealt, and that is the hand we have to play — until November.
Your Republican Party has been hard at work on both this past week.
Many of you have helped us to sign the petition calling on Governor Scott to veto the new gun control bill, S.30. With your help, we have collected over 1,400 signatures and counting. We also shot a great video with Rep. Pat Brennan of Colchester explaining the issue HERE
We also put together two videos regarding the Democrats twisting the apportionment process to give them al electoral advantage for the next 10 years. You can watch the video on Manchester/Arlington HERE, and the video on Manchester/Bolton HERE.
Ideally, we can work together for the 2022 election, and win the races we need in order to break up the Democratic Party’s control on the legislature and give Republicans and Independents who want a better balance for Vermonters more representation.
Republicans will continue to sound the alarm and fight where we can to stop the infringement of our constitutional rights, reduce the interference the government has on our everyday lives and create the environment we need to help people and businesses in our state to prosper and grow.
