Washington County Senator Bill Doyle is
soliciting public opinion on a wide range of issues on his annual Town Meeting Day
survey. And a number of the questions are hot button issues
that are likely to come before lawmakers in the second half of the session.
Survey says Vermonters value the state’s working
landscape; more Vermont
children will be eligible to receive free breakfasts at school this fall; Middlebury
celebrates opening of the Town Hall Theater; a recent UVM graduate among five
activists deported by China for protesting at Olympics.
This year marks the 40th anniversary of Washington
County senator Bill Doyle’s Town
Meeting Day survey. This year’s survey asks Vermonters how they feel
about leasing the lottery, same sex marriage, a four year term for governor and
raising the gas tax to fund road and bridge projects.
