We are joining with Vermonters for a New Economy to get as many Vermont towns and cities as possible to ask the legislature to create a partnership bank through voting at town meetings. In order to get an article on the warning for town meeting, the selectboard/city council has to agree to put the article on the warning. This requires asking the selectboard/council to do so and/or getting signatures of 5% of the registered voters in the town/city asking the selectboard/council to do so.
We are looking for people who will lead the efforts in the various towns. If you are willing to do this, please let us know and we will try to provide you with whatever assistance you may need
