Issues and Positions

  • Act 250 – We need to reassess. It stifles business
  • Act 46 – Against
  • Large scale Ridge-line Turbine farms – The ridgelines landscapes of Vermont are precious and should be protected. Local communities should have more control.
  • John believes that we should stand up technology maker spaces at all of the state schools as a think tank and invention bed, that could make Vermont the next technology hub.
  • John believes we are highly taxed and we can not afford the “Carbon Tax“.
  • Raise Minimum wage – Small business can’t afford this. John is against it.
  • John proposed the first legislation to resolve our problem with vehicle inspections. “Vehicle inspections should not fail because a sensor fails that tells me if my tires are soft or not. Most Vermonters drive used, second and third hand rigs, and many expensive non-safety related sensors are in their last stages of function.”
  • Constitutional Rights –  John believes that every right we have is dependent on the other rights. Compromise on one of them and we potentially compromise all of them.
