Montpelier has imposed it will on the right side of the state for the years now, Lake Champlain clean bill is up is a good example. Here in orange county there has been 2 cases from Residents for the last three weeks . This over reach by Scott is border line Marshall law. I work with my son and we cannot even work on a seasonal house on a dead end road . The Vermont economy is broke and your about 5 missing paychecks away from people to start mayhem. Larceny will be first and in major cities once looting starts and social media promotes it well u can imagine the rest. Phil Scott needs to open the spigot county by county . This baloney about were in for all is a feel good idea. Its better have one sector of the Vt economy open then none . I’m waiting to see how there going to handle there tourism season. Once they come up from NY and CT there going to be another wave of Covid 19 , what then another shut down . Let the folks that work out side get back to work. Your not going to keep Vermonter boarded up past the end of the month. By July Vermont will be broke .

what more needs to be said about a self inflicted economic disaster based on using
man made computer models that have prove to be wrong time and time again
Shame on Our leaders and double shame on us because next up are the whiners looking for hefty tax increases
