POMFRET, VT –- Drawing on his three-decades of experience as a job-creator, Scott Milne, candidate for lieutenant governor, today unveiled his “ProgressVT” plan, a comprehensive blueprint to invest in Vermont’s future. The plan represents the core of a prosperous vision for Vermont and includes specific policy reforms he would work toward as lieutenant governor.

“My ‘ProgressVT’ plan outlines a realistic path forward for Vermont as we continue to confront the immense challenges posed by COVID-19, the economic downturn, and other long-term, systemic threats,” said Milne. “These proposals are real and achievable, not bumper sticker sloganeering or pie-in-the-sky promises.”

ProgressVT covers ten key categories of issues we must address in order to emerge from the current crisis stronger than ever. The plan is informed by Milne’s background as a small businessperson and incorporates ideas from leaders such as Governor Phil Scott.

“Scott Milne is the only candidate for lieutenant governor who has produced a thoughtful, achievable, and affordable program to guide Vermont back to prosperity, and address the biggest challenges facing our families,” said former Gov. Jim Douglas. “Vermonters need more people representing them in Montpelier who are more interested in progress than platitudes and who have the right experience to get the job done.”

“I will be a partner with Governor Scott to advance these common-sense, pro-jobs policies that put people first,” added Milne. “And I will work together with Democrats, Republicans, Progressives, and Independents to bring true progress to our state.”

The ProgressVT plan is available at The 10 key pillars of the plan are:

  • Protecting the Truly Needy
  • Revitalizing Rural Vermont
  • Opening Up the Lieutenant Governor’s Office
  • Growing Our Workforce
  • Reforming Health Care
  • Expanding Educational Opportunities
  • Streamlining State Government
