Vermont Secretary of State Jim Condos is pleased to announce the dates and locations for his fifth biennial Transparency Tour. Throughout late October and November Secretary Condos will travel to several locations across Vermont to provide training and facilitate discussion on Vermont’s transparency laws; Vermont’s Public Records Act, and Open Meeting Law.

Government officials at all levels, from local volunteer board and commission members, to elected officials and state employees, and interested members of the public, are invited and encouraged to attend.

For the first time, this year’s Transparency Tour will include an overview of Vermont’s election procedures, and the steps the Secretary of State’s office is taking to ensure the integrity and security of our elections, titled “Defending Our Democracy.” With the 2020 elections just around the corner, Vermonters increasingly want to know that their votes are safe, secure and will count on Election Day.

As a longtime proponent of transparency and openness in government, Secretary Condos looks forward to engaging attendees in an informative discussion on the requirements of government officials, and the rights of Vermont citizens.

Jim Harrison “Office Hours”

Or perhaps more aptly “dump and donuts” will take place at the following times and locations:

Saturday, September 21
8:30 – 10:30 am – Bridgewater Transfer Station

Saturday, September 28
8:30 – 10:30 am – Chittenden Transfer Station

Saturday, October 5
8:30 – 10:30 am – Killington Transfer Station

Also:
Thursday, September 26
9:00 – 11:00 am – Mendon Town Office

I encourage members of the district (Bridgewater, Chittenden, Killington and Mendon) to stop by during one of the times above to provide input on State issues of importance to you or just to say Hi. Feedback and suggestions to move Vermont forward are always welcome.

Vermont has a citizen legislature, with state representatives and senators being part time positions. Most have other occupations they work around or take a leave from when the legislature is in session from January to May or are otherwise retired from their careers. And unless they are the House Speaker or Senate Pro Tem, they do not have offices or personal staff.

A citizen legislature (in my view) helps to keep our elected representatives more accessible to the districts they represent. Fall is a good time to start planning for the upcoming session with the sharing of ideas and concerns. I hope you will stop by during one of the above “Office Hours” or email me at JHarrison@leg.state.vt.us.
