ACEDC Represented on State Job Growth Advisory Commitee
Addison County Economic Development Corporation (ACEDC) Executive Director Robin Scheu and ACEDC Board Member Paul Ralston of Vermont Coffee Company were selected to serve on a new statewide Advisory Committee on Job Growth convened by VT House Speaker Shap Smith, D-Morrisville.
Smith sent out a request to the general public in January for economic strategy proposals. Smith then recruited an 11-member team of state business leaders, including Scheu and Ralston, to review these proposals. Smith asked Ralston, who is also a former state representative, to coordinate the advisory committee.
House Speaker Shap Smith is working with this advisory committee to sift through citizen proposals to improve job growth, and will share results with the House Committee on Commerce and Economic Development. The proposals will also be submitted to other legislative committees and state agencies by March 14.
