Opening Day in Montpelier

by Mathew Strong

As Will Rogers so aptly put it;

“The only difference between death and taxes is that death doesn’t get worse every time Congress meets.”

Here in Vermont we are dealing with many issues, and as legislature starts its 2014 session on Tuesday, January 7th, we sometimes almost cringe, wondering what is coming down the pike this year.

So, I thought it might be nice to take a closer look on behalf of True North, and you can come along with me via technology.

Follow me on Twitter and Instagram throughout the day as I give live details, pictures, and micro-interviews from the Statehouse as I talk to legislators, interested parties, and my Mom (Rep. Vicki Strong, Orleans/Calendonia #1) about the start of the session, the agenda, and the policies on the table.

I’ll be doing a wrap-up at the end of the day for True North if you don’t have consistent access to those sites/the internet or accounts with them. Either way, I’ll be working on trying to get a better understanding of the statehouse and the “representation” going on there so you can too, without having to take the day off from work.
