Lisman to Go With Gibbs

 Bruce Lisman’s self described “centrist” Campaign for Vermont is still stocking the shelves with Republicans. Lisman added to his inventory the brand new public relations firm started by former Douglas administration spokesperson Jason Gibbs. Gowithgibbs.com is where the company’s webpage will be someday soon.

VtBuzz.com reports Gibbs’ “strategic communication and project managment business” has been retained by a variety of clients but only Campaign for Vermont is named.The biggest news here may be that, at least according to Gibbs the Campaign for Vermont has started to focus on policy.Color me doubtful that any specifics will ever be brought forth.

He [Gibbs] said, “The work CFV is doing to encourage non-partisan dialogue around the issues most important to Vermonters will be productive and help move Vermont forward. For example, while the governor and legislature are debating physician assisted suicide and marijuana decriminalization, CFV is focused on growing the economy, creating better jobs and eliminating poverty; improving education outcomes and increasing teacher pay; and making government more efficient, productive and accountable through transparency.”

His nibs young Jason Gibbs was last seen in the public spotlight in his 2010 losing a bid for Vermont Secretary of State. Prior to that he was appointed by Governor Douglas to the Vermont Department of Forests and Parks and most recently worked at Vermont Ski Association.  

So go with Gibbs, when your Campaign for Vermont isn’t able to.

  1. “gowithgibbs.com”?

    Really?

    Sheesh. It just reeks of class, don’t it? At least it does if the “C” and “L” are silent.  

  2. The legislature can actually do many things.  If it were human…it could actually walk, tap its head and rub its belly all at the same time.

    Gibbs comment continues to oversimplify what is possible.  While I expect this from flamethrowers who have not been there, those that have been there (from all sides) know full well that there are hundreds of bills completed in each biennium.  These include economic development, as well as a variety of community interests.

    Always glad to see when people like Gibbs can really elevate the discussion in a productive way…not.

    So shortsighted. The funeral businesses is a growth industry. And when grandma and grandpa decide their time is up, nex of kin will turn to some legal weed. And we all know that it will be a state sanctioned gateway to the hard stuff.  And more drugs means more cops means more guns and cars and BearScats and pepper spray and what not. Everyone knows junkies will rob cheat and steal, whole destroying property, which is good for business. When shit breaks, someone needs to fix it! And don’t forget about the prisons. We’ll need lots of them.

    As for part 2, really, ending poverty? Wow.

    And it seems now they are for teachers unions. Can’t wait to see CFV writing op eds on supporting striking teachers.
