Vermont’s Congressional Delegation Takes Office

Senator Peter Welch and Representative Becca Balint have officially been sworn in to their official offices. Both congressional delegation members have demonstrated their commitment to the business community at Vermont Chamber events in recent months.  

In November, Welch met with restaurant leaders for a roundtable discussion reaffirming his support for the industry amid ongoing pandemic recovery efforts. Balint was a featured speaker at the inaugural Wellspring Forum, an event dedicated to connecting top business and policy leaders. She expressed her commitment to addressing issues top of mind for Vermont businesses such as workforce and housing. She also articulated her support for the manufacturing industry, stating, “I believe we have an opportunity, and an obligation, to bring more manufacturing back to Vermont. When you have people building things in your community, it’s an economic benefit and it also fosters pride of place.”
