Clean Energy Sector Glaringly Absent from Phil Scott’s Econ Plan

September 20, 2016

 

Burlington, VT  Last Thursday, Phil Scott rolled out an economic plan riddled with holes. One of the most glaring omissions was that of policies supporting Vermont’s growing clean energy sector. When asked if he could elaborate to help provide details for his clean and affordable energy plan, Phil Scott responded “No, I can’t.”

 

“Phil Scott’s view of economic growth is handing out tax credits that will only benefit developers and the construction industry while ignoring other thriving sectors of Vermont’s economy,” said Christina Amestoy, VDP spokesperson. “Scott’s inability to offer up one specific about his energy policy highlights his complete disregard for an entire industry that will help Vermont continue to be a leader in renewable energy technology, attract new, high-paying jobs, and to lower Vermonters’ energy bill.”

 

“For Vermont to continue to move forward, we need a governor who focuses on our entire economy - not just the sectors that fit what national Republicans believe our economy should look like or the sectors in which Phil Scott has built up his personal assets.”

VDP Releases #PhilintheBlanks Video

September 19, 2016

 

Burlington, VT  Today the Vermont Democratic Party released a new video entitled “#PhilintheBlanks,"  highlighting the gaps in Phil Scott’s economic plan rollout. The clips show Scott’s inability to answer questions about his plan for the economy, including questions concerning its impact, cost, and implementation.

 

When asked if he was able to provide more detail on his clean and affordable energy plan, Scott simply responded, “Uh, no. I can’t.” When asked what he considered the three most important ideas were in his plan, Scott struggled to list specific policy priorities in his four minute answer, finally offering up “opportunity here in the state” as his third proposal.



"Over and over again, Phil Scott has promised to be the governor with the policies to lead Vermont, but all he can deliver are vague national Republican talking points riddled with holes and lacking substance," said VDP spokesperson, Christina Amestoy. "The economic plan he delivered on Thursday which may have been applauded at an RGA conference,  failed to deliver policies that would help middle-class Vermonters and showed his inability to back up his platitudes with facts. Vermonters deserve a governor who not only has the right priorities, but the effective plans to achieve them as well. "
