Experience AND "Expertise"

For a Better, Leaner, Greener & Freer Vermont

As many other states have experienced a sharp decline on tax revenues and sharp increases in costs, so has Vermont.
Over the years, as a Strategy & Change consultant and Lean Six Sigma Master Black Belt, I've honed my deep Expertise in helping organizations, private and public sector, decrease costs, improve productivity, customer satisfaction and revenue.  How many of the other candidates have this Expertise? My prior experience AND expertise includes actually doing the following; (as a matter of fact, I'm probably the only candidate who has actual experience doing the following with the exception of cutting taxes but neither do the other candidates.)
  • Cutting spending and improving productivity
  • Retaining and growing business
  • Developing a cost consciousness culture
  • Cutting taxes
  • Equal rights and equal freedom for all Vermonters, all Vermonters
Can we afford to have a Governor who hopes they can cut costs, hopes they can improve productivity, hopes to retain and grow businesses, and hopes to create a cost conscious culture?  I don’t think so.  As Governor of Vermont, I can immediately set the wheels in motion on these initiatives.  I can not only provide the leadership and motivation to accomplish the goals I set forth, I have the deep Expertise and experience to coach and mentor our state employees through the process.  How many of the candidates have the “deep Expertise” to lead and drive the gut wrench changes that are required.
More specifically, I will;
  1. Cut spending and waste while improving productivity – before we can cut taxes, we need to get our cost structure under control.
    • We will reduce the cost of government including in healthcare and yes Education. I’ve worked in Healthcare, specifically for the Medical College of Virginia, CIGNA Healthcare, AETNA Healthcare and & GE Healthcare.  I know how healthcare operates.
    • We will improve the productivity of our State’s services so we can handle the expected growth in jobs and businesses without adding costs or additional employees. Doing so, will enable us to cut taxes in the near future without creating a deficit.  
    • Also, I will dehassel government! No more going to DMV and being treated like a buffoon.
    • We will also identify and remove nonsensical barriers that the state has imposed on businesses that limit entrepreneurship and businesses growth.
    • However, we WILL not compromise our environment to do so nor will we compromise our spectacular quality of life.
  2. Retain and grow our businesses by creating an infrastructure that enables businesses to grow –
    • using or existing state resources provide or subsidize training for Vermont businesses, especially the small businesses, in financial management (especially cash flow & cost management), strategy creation, operations management (improving quality, cost management, productivity).  
  3. Develop a cost-conscious culture –
    • immediately, all managers who manage a budget will be taught how to use data to develop realistic budgets, manage their budgets with an emphasis on identifying productivity improvements that will reduce the cost, improve the quality and delivery speed of their operations. The managers will be held accountable for driving down the costs of their services WHILE improving their services quality, timeliness and customer satisfaction. Every state agency will have publicly monitored measurable goals that include doing their jobs better, faster, cheaper & greener.
  4. Cut Taxes - cut taxes without compromising our quality of life, without compromising our financial position, education system or environment.
  5. Equal rights and equal freedom for all Vermonters, all Vermonters

In a nutshell

We need a leader with more than government experience during these trying times. We need a leader with deep "Expertise" in resolving the problems we face.  I have that Expertise.

My focus is on:

  • Cutting spending and improving productivity
  • Retaining and growing business
  • Developing a cost conscious culture
  • Cutting taxes
  • Equal rights and equal freedom for all Vermonters, all Vermonters

I also strongly believe that the government should not interfere with our personal freedoms.

"People should be empowered AND accountable to live the lives they chose."
