I was honored to get a Vermont Senate shout out at the Vermont Businesses For Social Responsibility (VBSR) Terry Ehrich awards dinner last week by long time friend and executive director Andrea Cohen . The event, weather and setting at Shelburne Farms were all spectacular. I was also happy to have a photo op with Andrea and Vice Board Chair Chris Miller; and also with another long time friend, Kevin Goddard of Blue Cross and Blue Shield. My former small business was a proud member of VBSR and my late wife, Sen. Sally Fox served as VBSR’s governmental affairs director before running for the Senate. The organization is critical and phenomenal in bringing an enlightened voice to economic and employment issues in the Statehouse and should be very proud of its work.
