We are planning a series of People's Forums all around the state this Fall where legislative candidates will be invited to hear presentations and have questions on healthcare and other issues facing working families. Maier's resignation should serve as a reminder to us that there will be many new faces in the Legislature next year and that we will have our work cut out for us to bring everybody up to speed on how Vermont will lead the nation on healthcare in 2011!
