    Petition to Listen

    Are you tired of constant cost of living increases and declining public services? What about state leaders who don't seem to care? So are we! Instead of complaining we are launching a petition drive to set them straight.

    Vermonters are tired of the state failing them.

    Join us in calling on the Legislature to listen.

    Dear Legislators, Vermonters rely on critical state services like infrastructure, public education, housing, and economic development. According to recent Campaign for Vermont polling, Vermonters now believe that the state is failing in the delivery of every one of these key services and that we are headed in the wrong direction as a state.

    Top issues that we care about are the cost of living in our state, affordable housing, and public safety. We urge you to focus on these critical issues instead of chasing radical policies that are widely unpopular and will increase the cost of living for Vermonters. Additionally, we need to shift our climate change strategy towards resiliency efforts - building dams, flood barriers, and other infrastructure to protect us from the impacts of climate change - instead of solely chasing carbon reduction strategies (particularly those that have outsized negative impacts on low and middle-income Vermonters).

    For too long the extremes at either end of the political spectrum have controlled the narrative despite the majority of us wanting moderate and reasonable policy solutions. In fact, 44% of Vermonters identify as independent voters and don't affiliate with either major party. Now we are calling on legislators to pull themselves out of these echo chambers and follow the will of the many instead the will of the few. Work for us instead of against us.

    Public Employee Compensation Project

    In November CFV released a new report that compares the wages and benefits of teachers and state employees to the private sector and what that means for the current discussions around pension reform. If you missed it, you can find the report here.

    We are planning to continue into Phase 2 of this project over the coming months, which MAY include:

    1. A further in-depth comparison of specific jobs between the public and private sector.
    2. An analysis of hiring competitiveness between the public and private sector.
    3. Comparing benefits offered by top-rated employers in the private sector to the public sector offerings.
    4. Analyzing how many private sector workers it takes to support one position in state government.

    If you have additional ideas, we would love to hear about them! You can contact us here.

    Please support this project by pledging below.
