MIDDLEBURY The public is invited to a local business forum. Several Addison County business owners, State Senators Claire Ayer and Harold Giard and Rep. Chris Bray will be participating in a forum hosted by the Bridport Democrats. The participants will explore actual situations experienced while establishing and operating a business in Vermont. The legislators will be listening for practical effects of legislation and regulations on starting and continuing a business. If you are considering starting or have just started your own business, this is an opportunity to learn from those who have experience acquiring financing, employees, location, etc. The forum is free and open to the public. It will be in the conference room of the Ilsley Library in Middlebury Wednesday, June 25, at 6:45 p.m. For additional information contact Chuck at 802-758-3250 or e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org.
