Speaking of budget cuts

More than 50 nonprofit organizations will be at the Statehouse on Thursday to meet with legislators and discuss the impact of budget cuts.

They’re scheduled to meet with the candidates for governor at 8:30 a.m. in the Cedar Creek Room and to meet with Gov. Jim Douglas at 2 p.m.

From noon-1 p.m. in Room 11, there will be a discussion of the future of Vermont’s nonprofits, moderated by businessman Bill Schubart and featuring panelists Stuart Comstock-Gaye of the Vermont Community Foundation, Tim Shea of the Lake Champlain Chamber of Commerce, Senate Appropriations Committee Chairwoman Susan Bartlett and House Human Service Committee Chairwoman Ann Pugh.

Time for all of these non-profits to step up to the plate by reducing all their employee salaries of over $60,000 by 5% and to require at least a 20% employee contribution towards benefits. Those who refuse to accept this reality should simply have their state funding eliminated. This includes VSAC, VEDA and all the other "Vs".
