Sen. Anthony Pollina @ Square Biscuit - Monday, 3/28 (6-8 p.m.)

Sen. Pollina will be in Northfield at the Square Biscuit this Monday evening from 6-8pm.

This is a public meeting to talk about issues (health care, budgets and whatever else) and ask questions. Everyone welcome, the restaurant is open, you can order off the menu – or not.

Vermont continues to face serious revenue shortfalls and dramatic cuts to important safety net programs and services are being considered. The House has restored about half of the money cut from mental health services and disability program cuts. It is important to talk to our senate delegation to ensure that progress is maintained (at a minimum).

Can we continue to "cut" our way out of the deficit? Are we all "sharing the pain"? Or, is it time for the wealthiest 1% to give back a small portion of the Bush tax cuts to help working Vermonters, seniors, and people with disabilities weather the recession? Now is the time to make your voice heard on these important issues. So, I hope you will come out and share your views with Senator Pollina and ask him whatever other questions may be on your mind.
